This book is very evil indeed! However, it should be read to understand the nature of what we are fighting against. There is no compassion within the pages of this book. Find on page 22 this books main goal. "Abolition of the family!" Is the books main purpose.
This book deceptively uses such old arguments as how bad factory working conditions are as a way to gain support for its real intent of destroying the sanctity of the family. Again on page 22, "The bourgeois claptrap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parent & child, becomes all the more disgusting...."
Marx continues to attempt at pulling people into this evil work by dividing men and women and attacking marriage, child labour, etc. Of course any thinking person is against child labour.
In addition to the "abolition of the family," look at Marx's other real purpose of writing this book and you will soon understand. His talk about the working man is nothing more than trickery to get you to buy into his evil scheme to do away with man's agency. Man's sovereignty & agency to choose for himself lies at the foundation of this most abominable work.
Read the 10 planks which are completely opposed to the US Constitutions original 10 amendments. The original Constitution of the United States is completely opposite and opposed to this book. Look at the results of each system today? The reason America is headed in the same direction now is, the original US Constitution is no longer the rule of law, rather, the US has embraced all 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto. Which is at the root of all its problems. The US needs desperately to return to being the light unto the world for liberty (i.e., man's agency), protection of the individual & family (marriage), private property (in all its forms), which are all God given rights. Take a good look at the fruits of the United States vs. Russia or China to understand the difference.
