Karl Marx

Today marks the 203rd birthday of Karl Heinrich Marx, who was a German philosopher, economist, historian, sociologist, political theorist, journalist, and socialist revolutionary.

He is the brain behind the ideology of communism and tried to push for a proletarian revolution that would bring in a more egalitarian society.

Today he is remembered as the revolutionary thinker who published Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei commonly known as The Communist Manifesto along with Friedrich Engels.

He also published another profound work of research that was dedicated to the socialistic movement, Das Kapital.

Marx’s critical theories about society, economics, and politics, collectively understood as Marxism, hold that human societies develop through class conflict.

In the capitalist mode of production, this manifests itself in the conflict between the ruling classes (known as the bourgeoisie) that control the means of production and the working classes (known as the proletariat) that enable these means by selling their labor-power in return for wages.

On the occasion of his birth anniversary, Twitter users are also paying tribute to the German philosopher.
