Karl Marx was a 19th century German philosopher, with some of the most influential ideas to date. His writings in The Communist Manifesto sparked some of the most famous revolutions, and have shaped the ideas and beliefs of many political philosophers today. His work is fascinating to examine, because, even though he lived more than a century and a half ago, his ideas are still relevant today. His arguments mostly revolve around the inequality presented by capitalist society. These arguments are very applicable to our current world as it is fundamentally alike with the time of Marx, in terms of economics.
