1. THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO – Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels


In the title of THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO, Marx and Engels presented an analytical approach to the class struggle and the problems of capitalism. THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO also contains their ideas for how the capitalist society of the time would be replaced by socialism, and then eventually communism. However, the book is lack of detailed potential future forms of communism.

In contrast to a great concept and abstraction of THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO, LANDMARKS OF SCIENTIFIC SOCIALISM by co-founder of Marxism Friedrich Engels is the principal source of understanding the social analysis of the philosophical theory and communism. Economists of Marxism credited LANDMARKS OF SCIENTIFIC SOCIALISM as “Much of the work is valueless to-day because of Engels' eagerness to score a point off his adversary rather than to state his own case. But where the philosopher lays the controversialist on one side for a brief period, and takes the trouble to elucidate his own ideas we discover what has been lost by these defects of temperament. He possesses in a marked degree the gift of clear analysis and of keen and subtle statement.”

After Marx and Engels, it was Lenin who took the theories of THE COMMUNIST MANIFEST and LANDMARKS OF SCIENTIFIC SOCIALISM to the next level for delivery and implementation of a truly socialistic country. 

Marx’s thought and Lenin’s path of building Soviets to address issues of Capitalism were catastrophic to the world. An estimated 70 million people died under the soviet regime. The human cost paid for their utopian theories was enormous. Yet despite all this, Marx’s thought is still worshipped by millions by other countries including North Korea and the aged followers in China today.

All of the essential predications by Marx in the book about world moving direction failed. However, history is a mirror for us. Reading the book, THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO and LANDMARKS OF SCIENTIFIC SOCIALISM, we can have a second thought on evolution of our social systems and avoid paying human cost we made in the past by socialistic countries including Soviets and China.

This is a must-read book to understand the foundational thought of a communist party and the nature of a socialistic country.
