Michele H. reviewed The Communist Manifesto (also pub. as Manifesto of the Communist Party) on
Very interesting book...few people today have an accurate notion of what communism is, as in modern days it has been instituted in corrupt, massive societies. A great read for anyone who wants background in political philosophy (which should, in fact, be everyone).
This pamphlet is obviously a classic of literature and history. Marx and pal Engels mix brilliant writing with a powerful vision of change and utopia. If you haven't put this on your reading list (and hung a capitalist from a lamppost) you are not living.
I can't believe what this wimpy little thing helped to propagate. It's so short and tiny that I could in all seriousness, If I were to prepare it properly, eat it as a single meal, say for dinner, or as heavy breakfast before heading out to perform my tasks as a completely replaceable and totally dispensable member of society. I like books about, how to hold conversations with people of younger generations then you, a lot better. I also don't care for churros. Not churros per se, but churros which are sold in fast moving subway cars, which break often and sharply. They aren't always wrapped the best in their little clear wrappings and I've seen the motion of the car cause them to tumble off the little fold-up churro table, the churro guys use, and onto the subway car ground, after which the churro guy ( I don't blame him though, I blame the capitalists, evolutionists and swine flu inventors ) just simply picked them back up blew all the really light germs off and proceeded to continue in selling these fallen items. I have never seen this happen before, but I guess if you are interested in communism and/or the history of it and it's impact on the world, then this is pretty much a book you should have and or read at some point. Thanks and may the wings of three million quail doves escort you to your heavenly mansions of gold and lace.
