"The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles."

On this date in 1848, The Communist Manifesto
: "I don’t see much point in abstract theorizing or getting into arguments about Marxism, Leninism, etc. ... Theoretical analyses are useful but not crucial. There is a lot of wasted time in such endeavors, but not all is wasted. Marx’s Communist Manifesto
was a theoretical analysis, immensely useful and inspiring. His first volume of Das Kapital
was useful too. His second and third volumes, and his Grundrisse
, were probably a waste of time!"
How many of you have actually read the entire Communist Manifesto
? (I haven't.)
