This paper discusses how "The Communist Manifesto", written in 1848 by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, describes the history of all societies, as the source stemming from socio- economic class conflicts. In particular, the paper examines its main ideas and their applicability to modern society such as property, tax and inheritance and provides the author's own personal opinion. The paper concludes that there are definitely ideals drawn from "The Communist Manifesto" that are pertinent today.

From the Paper:

"Marx and Engels develop a set of rules, almost like what we consider nowadays to be
the Ten Commandments, for an "advanced country" to follow. The main ideas are that individual or private inheritance, graduated income tax, and progressive tax, are abolished. Also, all members of a society share an equal obligation to work, and that a combination of agriculture and manufacturing industries are necessary for a functioning society. I feel that the equal obligation of all to work is one of the most effective rules set forth in The Communist Manifesto. In order for a society to prosper, this idea must be established. Today, it is the work of a select few that seems to hold the country together, and it should be all members of the society that accomplishes this task. Imagine how much our society could advance if everyone shared in equal work. Since history as never had a society like this, it is hard to fully comprehend how it would develop and prosper."
