The importance of Class Struggles in "Communist Manifesto."

The communist's manifesto gives an account of materialistic interpretation of history. It
observes two major antagonistic classes of people in the society; the bourgeois (the well-off
people in the community) and the proletariat the less privileged. However, as progress continues
the classes actively take new forms and dimensions. This paper will elaborate on class struggles
in the communist manifesto and contemporary world.

How Marx and Engels conceive class struggle

Marx and Engels view class struggles and a transitory process, they utilized terms like
Freeman and slave, baron and serf, oppressor and oppressed among others to show the
distinction between the people and the two opposite divisions of social classes. Both
philosophers are that class struggles occur in many forms however the primary reason is the
economic reasons. Through history, workers struggle against capitalist to attain their economic
concessions. Famous as the economic class struggle, workers push for their interests and benefits
like higher pay, reduced working hours and improved work conditions through trade unions.
Furthermore, the theorists suggest that economic struggle serves only to train workers to be
economically conscious and does not necessarily lead to victory. According to Marx and Engels
political struggle is the highest form of class struggle bound to free from bourgeois oppression
and prejudice. Marx suggests that a proletariat revolution and rise to power will help break social
classes. Only a classless society will end the struggle (Monalisa, 2017).
