The Communist Manifesto argues that all societies

Communist Manifesto argues that all societies through the entirety of history
have gone through “class struggle” and through that struggle is how they move

      Chapter one of the pamphlet discusses the
development of societies through class struggle. Class struggle means the conflict
that occurs between an oppressor and the oppressed. The blueprint of every
society has always had an oppressive ruling class controlling the majority. The
“bourgeoisie”, or ruling class has exploited the “proletarians”, or working
class through the private ownership of land. The bourgeoisie use the proletarians
for labor while taking in majority of the profits and “capital”. Capital is the
profits or private property of the bourgeoisie that makes up their wealth. This
system will ultimately cause class struggle and inevitably end in a proletarian

      Chapter two discusses the relationship
between communists and proletarians and what communism will ultimately succeed
at doing. Communists want to get rid of the bourgeoisie and their property because
this is what enslaves the proletarians. By doing this, it will put the “means
of production”, which means the resources and methods of producing goods in the
hands of the proletariats. Several steps are offered to the working class so
they can eventually gain complete power once all ownership of property is
eliminated. Once power is gained they should terminate all class distinctions.

      Chapter three discusses the distinctions
of communism from the rest of the social systems during this time. Communism
ultimately rejects all of these systems because they will inevitably lead to class

      The concluding chapter discusses the
communist’s opinion on current conflicts in European countries and that these
countries are nearing a bourgeois revolution. The document concludes by
proclaiming a communist revolution to save people from oppression and the final
words are “Working men of all countries, unite!”
