The Communist Manifesto is one of the most famous political pamphlets by the German philosophers Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx. The pamphlet was commissioned in the presence of the Communist League and had primarily been published in London in the year 1848 during the initial breakouts of the infamous revolutions that took place in the same year. The Communist Manifesto aims to present to the readers the analytical approaches towards the class struggles that were evident in the then political scenario, the conflicts that arise from capitalism as well as the capitalist mode of production. The pamphlet, however does not deal with the predictions of the potential future forms of communism. The following essay deals with the attitude of the proletariat at the better earning possibilities of the various members of the bourgeois class of the society.
The Communist Manifesto opines that the society might have to face some changes due to the fact that the proletariat section of the section might face some issues due to the fact that the earning of the bourgeois section of the society tend have a better financial footing than the former. The bourgeois section of the society generally refers to that capitalist class of the society. This section of the society is generally known as the determiners of the production and the various markets that might serve to connect to the target customers in the given society. The bourgeois class is majorly known for their revolutionary nature that led to the dethroning of the various old and traditional ways that were followed by the concerned areas of the society (Lamb, 2015). These sections of the society were known to have more power and therefore lead a life that is financially more stable than the various other sections of the society that have been serving under the bourgeois class. This class, as might be pointed out from the various statements from the then literature, was the owner of a huge amount of the financial reserves and thus led to the accumulation of the power on one end of the society. The proletariats on the other hand are the members of the society who have been serving the society under the bourgeois section of the society as a part of the working classes in the factories and the other areas that pertain to the economic development of the concerned countries during the era (Lamb, 2015). The Communist Manifesto states that the proletariat section of the society might be on the rise due to the oppression that they might have been facing within the concerned society thereby leading to an upheaval in the various strata of the society (Lamb, 2015). Karl Marx, the renowned political thinker, had argued that the various members of the workforce at the various factories might be taking part in a revolution due to the continuous oppression that is exerted by the various members of the bourgeois class of the society. The great political thinker opined that the difference in the classes of the society might lead to the upheaval of the oppressed class thereby leading to the conditions of an industrial revolution in the concerned country. The political thinker however opined that the concerned society should adapt to the theories that are put forth by the concerned areas of the society on the basis of the communism that must be present within the society. According to Marx, the major fact that the concerned society should look into states the equality that should be maintained among the various members of the society in order to prevent an upheaval in the society. The concerned literature on the issue states that the opposers to The Communist Manifesto had aimed at putting forward the various theories that stated that the theory of communism as put forwards by Karl Marx might lead to the upheaval within the society (Lamb, 2015).
Karl Marx, as founded in The Communist Manifesto, is found to have been putting forth the theory of the communist society in a metaphorical pattern as a spectre that is believed to have held the view that the communism is one of the most important ways in which the concerned society might lead to the stable conditions within kits existence (Lamb, 2015). The abolition of the communist manner of governance might have led to the loss of the hierarchy within the concerned society thereby leading to the conditions of anarchy within the concerned society. The political thinker opines that the hierarchy should be maintained within the society in order to bring about a condition of peaceful cohabitation of the various groups of members who have been living within the society.
However, The Communist Manifesto does not generally put forth the fact that there might be a change in the society due to the high amount of the financial accumulation with the bourgeois classes within the concerned society. This might lead to the conditions of anger within the various members of the proletariat sections of the society. The proletariat section of the concerned societies has been oppressed by the various bourgeois members of the society (Lamb, 2015). The Communist Manifesto majorly deals with the concepts of the materialistic conception of the history and the struggle of the classes that are evident within the society. The literature on the matter states that the concerned political thinker had through the political pamphlet put forth the various matters that dealt with the actions that might have been undertaken by the concerned members of the proletariat sections of the society in order to deal with the constant oppression that had been imposed by the bourgeois section of the society. The political pamphlet had also put forth the fact that the struggles that have been undertaken by the oppressed class against the oppressor classes have always resulted in two different outcomes. The common outcomes refer to the reconstruction of the society on the basis of a revolution that did take place or the conditions that pertain to the common ruin of the concerned classes of the society. Karl Marx had suggested that the contradiction between the bourgeois and the proletariat had resulted from the various struggles that had stemmed from the differences in the classes and the oppression that is existent among the various sections of the society (Lamb, 2015). The political thinker had further opined that the bourgeois class of the society that had been responsible for the oppression of the proletariat classes of the society had been resulting from the various ruins of the feudal society that had existed in the earlier days of the society. The renowned political thinker, Karl Marx had opined that the then society had two prominent divisions among the members who had been residing within the concerned society. These two divisions were mainly the bourgeois and the proletariat sections of the society. The bourgeois class referred to the class of people who majorly dealt with the financially strong residents of the society and aimed at the domination of the proletariat section of the society. The bourgeois section of the society had been working in favor of the implementation of the various novel ways and manners in the production and the distribution of the various goods that were manufactured during those times as well as the administrative factors involved in the activities.
Thus, from the above essay it might safely be concluded that The Communist Manifesto had indeed put forth the clear distinction that was present within the society during the time of its composition. The composition further tends to explore the situation that pertains to the increment in the gap that exists within the concerned sections of the society in terms of the power and the financial conditions of the various members. The political pamphlet discusses the fact that the oppression that is faced by the proletariat section of the society might lead to a revolution in the near future against the members of the bourgeois section of the society.
