203 years ago, on May 5, 1818, in the city of Trier, Karl Marx was born – the greatest thinker, public figure, revolutionary, one of the founders of Marxism-Leninism, especially proletarian political economy.
Karl Marx occupies an exceptional place in the history of mankind. In his personality coalesced the traits of a genius thinker who brought about a revolutionary upheaval in the social sciences, and an unyielding revolutionary fighter who helped transform the labor movement into an unprecedented force of social progress.
By reworking with his powerful mind the knowledge accumulated by mankind, primarily in philosophy and political economy, Karl Marx together with Friedrich Engels refined the ideas of socialism, revealed the objective laws on the basis of which social development is accomplished, thus transformed socialism from utopian to scientific and armed the proletariat with a revolutionary theory of struggle for the construction of a classless society.
Thus, Karl Marx opened the era of scientific socialism and the communist renewal of the world.
A great way to celebrate this date would be to start studying the classic’s major work – “Capital”, which is also published on our website. Nothing can replace the study of this fundamental work these days.
