Today, May 5, we celebrate the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth.
The most famous work of Marx’s extensive literary production is Capital (Das Kapital). It is a critical analysis of capitalism and capitalist economics and theories. The first part of the book was published in 1867. The second and third parts appeared in a post-edict by Friedrich Engels in 1885 and 1894. Capital is known throughout the world and has been translated into almost all major languages.
Another world-wide Marx work co-authored by Friedrich Engels in 1848 is the Communist Party’s manifesto.
The manifesto begins with the words “The Ghost in Europe – The Ghost of Communism. All the maimed of the old Europe have been allied to the holy pilgrimage against this scapegoat: Pope and Tsar, Metternich and Guizot, French Radicals and German Police “and concludes with the words” Proletarians have nothing to lose except their chains. But to win they have the whole world. ”
Karl Marx is celebrated and remembered today all over the world. The Communist Party of China and the country’s leadership have held a banquet yesterday. President and President of China, Xi Jinping, said in his speech that Marx is the greatest thinker of today and that China’s future is based on the socialist philosophy.
