The Power Of Words
In what way is the pen mightier than the sword?
Words, just like a sword or any weapon can be used for good or evil.
But words can reach and change far more people than any known weapon.
We need look no further to get a better understanding of the power of words than Karl Marx.
Two books written by Karl Marx (Marxism), The Communist Manifesto (1848) and Das Kapital (1867–1894) changed the world.
Who Was Karl Marx?
Karl Heinrich Marx was a German philosopher, economist, sociologist, historian, journalist, and revolutionary socialist.
And he is often described as one of the most influential figures in human history which is high praise indeed.
He was born: May 5, 1818, Trier, Germany, and died March 14, 1883, London, United Kingdom.
Many revolutionary socialist governments adopted Marxist concepts, and they were put into practice in a variety of countries in the 20th century.
Two of the biggest being, The Soviet Union in 1922 and The People’s Republic of China in 1949.
Meaning that Karl Marx’s power or words affected people in their billions, and not millions.
