The Communist Manifesto is a document which explains the underlying theory and goals of the Communist Movement. An extremely influential political work, this document critiques capitalism, explaining that the struggles between upper and lower economic classes are what cause historical developments like Revolution. Thus, the Manifesto concludes that capitalism is inherently unsustainable, and that a Communist revolution which results in the elimination of class is required to change the status quo.
