Kevin Keane, Communist Manifesto 3 & 4

Similar to the first two chapters of the Communist Manifesto Marx uses the faults in other political movements to present Communism as a solution to the current problems that society is facing. The problems that he offers solutions to are all troubles that the proletariat faces. The proletariat being the majority of the population, he seems to be attempting to manipulate them into seeing problems in their government. In his last couple sentences he states, “The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win… Proletarians of all countries, unite!” Marx clearly says that the proletariat is not being treated as they should and they need to contest the current government. In the time period that this was written it would strike fear of revolt in the minds of the bourgeoisie. He is telling the majority of the population that they are being persecuted and that they can do something about it. I feel as though Marx is able to present his ideas in a very strong and convincing way.
