The Communist Manifesto is an especially interesting book to read because of the profound impact it has had on the world. In it, Karl Marx expresses a future where everyone can finally be happy, and does so in a very convincing way. However, what I enjoyed most about his teachings is his idea about the thesis and anti thesis of humanity. Marx shows that society essentially progresses in a spiral. There is someone gathering a lot of wealth, there huge groups of populations who get oppressed, and then there is a revolution. After the revolution, the spiral continuous in the same order. What is unusual is the Marx eventually hypothesizes an ending to the spiraling of society. He predicts a complete change in consciousness by people, along with a final revolution against the bourgeoisie. People would cease caring about profits and transactions, and use the industrial world to make everyone happy. I find such an idea remarkable, because his philosophy is very close to what Lucretius preaches. Both Marx and Lucretius believe in the constant progression of people. However, Marx has more faith in humanity than Lucretius. Rather than worrying about themselves, Marx truly believes that there will come a time where everyone will work as one organism to make a better future.
