This paper discusses the ideas in "The Communist Manifesto" by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, in which they set forth a program that is both descriptive and prescriptive, describing what they see as the evolution of society and prescribing action in order to take society to the next level. According to the paper, they say that this level is inevitable, but that does not mean it cannot be hurried along by action. The Manifesto involves both social and economic change on a grand scale, including a shift in the political structures from one era to the next.
From the Paper:"The state in which these men lived at the time was capitalism, which they saw as only an interim state before the uprising of the proletariat and the imposition of a dictatorship of the proletariat before a shift to a completely communist system, presumably the end point in the evolution of the social order.
