    Revolutionary Ideas - Episode 10 - How to Read 'The Communist Manifesto'

    'The Communist Manifesto', written in the 19th century, remains widely read, but not always understood. Often misrepresented and distorted by the capitalist class and Stalinism alike, it is more important than ever that we ask, “what did Marx and Engels really stand for?”. As we enter the stormy decade of the 2020s, with mass struggles on the horizon, rediscovering the real ideas of Marxism is needed to prepare us for events to come.

Brilliant podcast!

Vital & informative

At times like this it’s important that we inform ourselves of the situation in the world, as well as our role in it. Especially recommend for anyone with an interest in socialism in the UK.
