Marx and Engels presented an analytical approach to the class struggle and the problems of capitalism in The Communist Manifesto. The book 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.

It was Lenin who took the theories of The Communist Manifest to the next level for delivery and implementation of a truly socialistic country. Lenin published The April Theses on April 4, 1917 after his return to Saint Petersburg from his exile in Switzerland. He called for soviets to take power with new communist policies. The April Theses influenced the July Days and October Revolution and were identified as the key piece of Leninism.

The collected thoughts by Marx and Lenin in the two books had a strong influence on many communist leaders to replicate October Revolution Model through overthrowing a ruling party with an armed revolution.

Many of arguments in the collection by Karl Marx and Lenin appear familiar for globalization today. However, As British Prime Minister Winston Churchill once said “He (Lenin) alone could have found the way back to the causeway... The Russian people were left floundering in the bog. Their worst misfortune was his birth... their next worst his death.”

Communist solution of building Soviets to address issues of Capitalism is catastrophic to the world. An estimated 70 million people may have died under the soviet regime. The human cost was enormous. Yet despite all this, Lenin’s Soviets was worshipped by millions as a great model by other countries including North Korea today.

History is a mirror for us. Reading the collection written by Marx and Lenin, we can have a second thought on globalization and our future direction. This can help us avoid paying unnecessary 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.
