    If anything, Karl Marx's life reminds us the eternal power of the pen over the sword. Love him or hate him but the power of his ideas and its legacy cannot be denied. Many of Marx's insight still seems surprisingly relevant 150 years later. With the rise of AI economy it can be argued that much of Marx's speculations in Das Kapital is still rather salient to this very day. Suggestions of universal basic income and other ideas could easily fit within a marxist mold. If anything, Karl Marx's life reminds us the eternal power of the pen over the sword.

    Based on this book, Karl Marx is more well-known today than he was while alive.  In fact, Marx was so desperately poor, that he was supported by Friedrich Engles, a German philosopher, communist, political activist, and businessman. Together, they wrote 'THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO.'  Engles was wealthy from the English textile mills (of his father) and supported Marx for most of his life.  Marx was hobbled by poor health throughout much of his life.

I looked up info about Karl Marx and learned that he was 'stateless' after 1845.  I was disappointed Hourly History didn't make mention this significant fact.  According to my reading, the Prussian government pressured Marx to leave France.  At that point (I believe), he became stateless.  This is a rather important fact to understand the world and Karl Marx.

    I decided to take a break from my usual genre of reading - business, startups, finance and dived into the world of political philosophy. For years, I have wondered how Karl Marx and his Marxist theory has enamored intellectuals, political parties, and proletariats.

For years, I have wondered how Karl Marx and his Marxist theory has enamored intellectuals, political parties, and proletariats. This is a very short book that deals with Marx's life and how he went on to have a profound influence but serves as a good stepping stone. The genesis of Marxist ideology lies when his family had to convert to Christianity because of anti-semitic policies existent in the 19th century. He then saw the conditions of workers and peasants and how in spite of toiling, they merely eked out a living. The bourgeois class was high exploitative in that era. That's when he laid out the following principles: 1) All proletariats should unite irrespective of religion. There should be no division based on religion as it only discriminates and deprives ( and that is why we still see hammer and sickle on their flag) 2) Eradication of private possession and fiefdom (Birth of Communist Ideology) 3) The proletariats should be at the helm of the administration of the region It is important to understand that Communism is a part of his ideology and not the ideology itself. It is ironic that though the ideology proscribes private possession, it ultimately leads to a nation being ruled by a dictator/authoritarian, who considers the nation as his private kingdom. China, Russia, and North Korea are prominent examples. They have used the principles as per their convenience. Karl Marx, though highly intelligent and a man of firm principles, lead a life stricken with poverty. While he abhorred the rich class, he preferred that his daughter marry a rich person, to avoid any economic hardships, he and his wife suffered. This is where lies the biggest paradox. Where does it leave the voters to decide when political parties pitch their right and left ideology? In my opinion, the Leftist ideology should serve as the watchdog over administration. It should balance the power and benefits to the proletariats. But the ideology cannot be the basis of administration. Barring few examples, left ideology when in power has done more harm than good. Mao Zedong, Stalin, Kim Jong show the perils of this ideology. Does this mean capitalism is perfect? Definitely, No. It is less bad than communism. China, which boasts of a communist party rule, has principles of capitalism lying underneath its roaring progress and transformation. Leftist ideology can help in negating the disadvantages of capitalism if applied intelligently and not blindly.

    The platitude “the pen is mightier than the sword” could not fit a man any better than the passive revolutionist, theorist, and philosopher, Karl Marx. Marx was born in the picturesque town of Trier, Germany on May 5, 1818. This was also the beginning of the industrial revolution, where the world changed drastically both socially and economically.

Marx was born in the picturesque town of Trier, Germany on May 5, 1818. This was also the beginning of the industrial revolution, where the world changed drastically both socially and economically. During this time there was a great migration from the country to the cities, where new manufacturing companies provided much-needed employment for the growing population. This was also the birth of capitalism, where money was king. This was an ugly but necessary evil to fuel the revolution that would eventually birth the middle class. When Marx met Friedrich Engels, a pact was formed that would dictate the direction that the rest of their lives would take. The two philosophers worked as intellectual provocateurs continuously feeding off each other. Karl Marx was a born passive revolutionary. He wasn’t the one that would be seen violently storming in the streets and the many injustices in the world, but rather the inspiration that brought men like Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trotsky, Che Guevara, and Fidel Castro into action; he was a pure theorist. Marx’s brand of Communism can be best described as Utopian Communism. In a perfect world, populated by faultless people, this type of government would be wonderful. Unfortunately, the world isn’t perfect, people aren’t faultless, and his words are open to interpretation. This is a short summary of a life filled with inspiration, love, hardship, poverty, and pain. Despite a glaring misprint (the publication year of Das Kapitol), the book provides a good insight into a man of strong principals and enormous intellect.

    Crisp, yet felt thorough! Thanks to Hourly History's initiative of providing concise histories and particularly the author of this book, who I believe has genuinely truncated the history of the life of the theoretical genius Karl Marx. Crucial parts of his association with Engels were covered. I recommend this book to all beginners who would love to peek into the life of this selfless and paramount philosopher!

    A great introduction to the study of communism. The book as the author claimed takes very short time to read, but provides a good overall image of Marx’s life. It’s a good read to anyone who didn’t pay much attention in college (like myself) to reintroduce oneself to the history and philosophy.

    Biografia de un personaje que trascendio a traves de sus ideas y de sus obras. Un filosofo que sento las bases del comunismo. Un padre amoroso y un esposo fiel. Ademas un hombre que padecio de discriminacion por su ascendencia judia y que desgraciadamente sufrio muchas penurias economicas. Una historia bien contada.

    For a person whose ideas have created nations, wars and revolutions, his personal life had always been full of struggle and financial hardship. Rightly said in the book “ would have been better if Mark created some capital instead of just writing about it”

    Barely okay as an introduction yo Marx This very short book sketches Karl Marx's life and philosophy to the bone. The writing is ungainly in many places. Would have benefited from better editing.

    Short histories for everyone. A good, short biography of Karl Marx and the philosophy that made him infamous the world over. People will be surprised that Marx was more of a progressive individual than his interpretators Lenin , Stalin, or Mao would have you believe.

    Fathers teach your children and know what you believe The history reported was direct the sad story reminds us of the importance of proper teachers. American pioneers were poor workers too but did not do this

    Matter of fact narrative I wish this book could have shown parts of Das capital, which is a very important work of Karl Marx. Or atleast write down the essence of that book.

    Very strange story Interesting that Marx’s financial existence for more than 40 years depended on the wealth of Engel gained from English textile workers.

    Good Job! A beautiful though sorrowful account of Karl Marx's life. He was a man of his word. Through all the downs and destitute times in his life, he never compromised on his ideals. One thing I believe in Marx is his genuineness of his thoughts and ideas. Good Job! A beautiful though sorrowful account of Karl Marx's life. He was a man of his word.
