This paper presents a review of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels's vision as written in "The Communist Manifesto". In the book, the essential theory presented is the creation of only one class, so that there would no longer be a class struggle. The writer includes comments from Marx and Engels on whether the argument in the book is legitimate or flawed and uses other writers and philosophers who also comment on the book.
From the Paper:"In the novel, a doctor, through mathematical calculations, discovers that he has a soul, which is a completely unheard of notion in his society, where individuals are objectified and individuality is stifled. Reason is viewed as the citizens' primary handicap. The society in We is so objectified that even thought and love are explained by a mathematical equation. This novel Each novel foreshadow a future of a society which stifles individuality and warns of a future of science, technology and rationalism carried to an excessive degree and completely lacking in ethics. Zamyatin is openly criticizing many aspects of the communist society in which he lived."
