5.0 out of 5 stars The communist manifesto., 17 Sept. 2012

This review is from: The Communist Manifesto (Hardcover)
I think this is the shortest and most concise statement of Marx's thought. All the elments are there, the economic, political, technological and historical.It is also I think, one of his most readable pieces... if not the most. This work alone shows Marx is still the most eloquent and accurate critic of 'capitalism'. Unfortunately for Marx his grand theory turns out to be only half the story. He never managed to read Freud's 'The Id and the Ego' (how could he)!
Alas for Karl, it turns out that the world's poor and oppressed are not dreaming of liberty, equality, fraternity and socialism, but rather of being rich, famouse and 23 forever. KM was always railing against various utopias, although he managed to invent one himself. Anyway, read both the mentioned books. Briliant but incompatible... a bit like general relativity and quantum theory.
