Criticism of Marxism
The Communist Manifesto is a political text by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, aimed at both developing the theory of communism and engaging readers to take up its cause. First published in , the book offers a detailed critique of capitalism , a spirited defense of communism, and practical suggestions for bringing about a communist society. This sets the manifesto up as a response to those who misrepresent communism. The authors argue that all societies in history have been divided between the oppressors and the oppressed. Whereas in previous societies this might play out in a more complex form, capitalism simplifies class division, splitting society into the bourgeoisie —those with all the wealth and private property—and the proletariat , the majority of the population that has no choice but to work for the bourgeoisie. The proletariat are paid a wage to work with the means of production in order to create things the bourgeoisie can sell—which then generates profit, kept by the bourgeoisie.
One of the most important theoretical challenges facing us is developing a viable alternative to capitalism. Achieving this requires rethinking basic premises of social theory and practice, given the difficulties of freeing humanity from such problems as alienation, class domination, and the capitalist law of value. Keywords: socialism , value production , abstract labor , Communism , state. When Karl Marx broke from bourgeois society and became a revolutionary in the early s, he joined an already-existing socialist movement that long predated his entrance upon the political and ideological scene. Neither he nor any other radical intellectual of the time invented the idea of socialism and Communism.

Abstract: With the break-up of the Soviet Union and collapse of communism in , Marx is now untethered from the stigma of Stalinism and, with the crisis in global capitalism, is now very much in vogue. It ends by suggesting that the international development sector should apply a Marxist and Freirean analysis to the Sustainable Development Goals SDGs in determining their efficacy and prospects for success. Given the dominance of the SDGs in the international development policy landscape this question has assumed increasing importance.
