The paper explains Marx and Engels' views on socialism in "The Communist Manifesto" and then shows how George Orwell's "Animal Farm" also embodies many of the criticisms of how a utopian society cannot possibly work. The paper explains how these works both show why the system of Communism is fundamentally flawed.

From the Paper:

"The Communist Manifest and Animal Farm have both been noted as very prominent books, both displaying significant arguments towards the issues of communism and socialism. In both situations, we see struggles and rivalries emerge creating a chaotic and vicious cycle. There is a constant bout of upheaval and revolt from the cycle of Communism, sometimes bearing the question of whether Socialism and Communism are faulty systems. In The Communist Manifest, we see Marx and Engels predict the downfall of the capitalist system. Similarly, in Animal Farm there are revolts and uprisings which essentially show critical errors in the system. These books both share a common ground, in that; they both show why the system of Communism is fundamentally flawed."
