THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO 2
The Communist Manifesto
The tension between the Proletariats and Bourgeoisies
The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels centers on the class struggle
propagated by capitalism. Marx and Engels postulate that the root causes of the class struggle stem
from capitalism defining the mode of production. Capitalism spurs tensions among the social
groups creating the classes, including the working class (proletariat) and the bourgeoisie, that
owned the means of production. The bourgeoisie exploits the proletariat for their labor to
accumulate more capital for themselves and maximize profits. Karl and Engels, however, postulate
that the exploitation of the proletariats would eventually stimulate a revolution following the
realization of their potential (Marx, & Engels, 2016). Although the bourgeoisie has the power to
exploit the proletariats for their labor power, there exists significant tension between the groups as
the working class has the potential to overthrow the bourgeoisie.
The proponents of communism, Marx, and Engels posit that capitalism encompassed
aspects that would lead to its destruction. The continued exploitation of the proletariat for the
economic benefits of the bourgeoisie would lead to resentment and a revolution that would
overthrow capitalism. Marx and Engels postulate that the open or hidden tension among the group
would eventually stimulate revolutions that would restructure society. The restructured society
would lead to communism that seeks to serve the common interests of proletariats across the globe
as a whole. Communism, therefore, would end exploitation by attaining a classless society through
short-term measures such as the abolition of private property and inheritance, creation of a central
bank that centralizes credit and progressive income tax (Marx, & Engels, 2016). As such, Engels
and Marx imply that the tensions among the bourgeoisie and proletariat are essential in the
realization of the development of society in a quest to serve general will.
