Summary of The Communist Manifesto

Working on redoing / updating this – 2020.05.23

The Communist Manifesto represents a philosophy that teaches the citizens to give up their Rights for the sake of the “common good.”

  • Abolition of private property
  • Heavy progressive income tax
  • Abolition of all rights of inheritance
  • Confiscation of property of all emigrants and rebels
  • All-powerful Central Bank
  • Government control of Communications and Transportation
  • Government ownership of factories and agriculture
  • Government control of labor
  • Corporate farms, regional planning
  • Government control of education

Human nature being what it is, Communism has never worked out very well in real life… depending, of course, on your definition of ‘common good’, and whether or not you believe Communism has ever been ‘properly’ implemented.

It is natural for human beings to act in their own self interest, even when acting in good faith, so Communism is perhaps by its nature suspicious and mistrusting of its citizens. It rules by a system of Preventive Justice.
