The paper shows that in today's society, our system is still based on the two great classes: Bourgeoisie and proletarian. It discusses how the bourgeoisie has all the control, power and wealth over the proletarian and that society is divided into the poor, middle, and wealthy classes. The paper relates all of this to the "The Communist Manifesto" by Karl Marx and his communist ideologies.
From the Paper:"The connection I want to make is how class struggle is directly related to the system of capitalism. Karl Marx, in the Communist Manifesto, discusses the class struggle between the few bourgeoisie (capitalist class ) and the many proletarians ( working class ). The bourgeoisie have gotten the upper hand by exploiting the proletarians. The capitalist can live longer without the worker than can the worker without the capitalist. There is a constant struggle between the wealthy and the poor to increase capital for their survival."
