      Who are these guys?
    • What is Communism?
      ‘Those guys’ wrote the ‘Communist Manifesto’
      in 1847. It’s a short book – but billions of people have read it….
      This is Karl Marx, the ‘Father of Communism’. People who believe in his ideas are called ‘Marxists’
      This is his good friend, Frederick Engels.
    • What is Communism?
      Marx and Engels studied the history of the world’s economies.
      This means the way that power, industry and finance are controlled.
      They saw the way countries developed in stages.

      Communism
    • What is Communism?
      This is how humans first lived together – in small tribes. Primitive means ‘not very advanced’ e.g. hunting and gathering. Communism means that everything was shared amongst the tribe – food, jobs, belongings. No-one owned land. Eventually a group comes to power – this leads to Feudalism…

      Communism
    • What is Communism?
      Under feudalism, a king or emperor or chief becomes the ruler over all the people.
      He gives land and privileges to ‘nobles’ who rule the people for him.
      The people are kept uneducated and told that god chose the king to rule. The church helps the king this way.
      Feudalism
      As trade develops, some people get richer. This leads to Capitalism…..
      Primitive
      Communism
    • What is Communism?
      The capitalists get more power to serve their own interests.
      The business owners or capitalists get richer while the workers do all the hard work.
      Capitalism
      Feudalism
      Capitalism creates a huge working-class of people who soon get angry at the way they are treated. They organise in unions and demand changes. This will lead to a revolution and Socialism…
    • What is Communism?
      Because nothing is made for profit, all people benefit from education and health.
      The workers take control of the country to produce things for everyone.
      Socialism
      These ideas spread across the world to create Communism….
      Capitalism
      In the Socialist revolution all the rulers – kings, churches, capitalists are got rid of.
    • What is Communism?
      The remaining capitalists put up a bitter fight, but the will of the people will always win.
      Communism
      Socialism
      All human activity goes towards benefiting each other – allowing all to live their lives to the full.
      As everyone now works together, war is a thing of the past – armies are not needed. Sharing means no police are needed. Everything is provided by the people – so money becomes a thing of the past.
