If you want to find out more about the theory of communism, then I recommend watching this video above, which we linked to on the i In any case,

Karl

Marx

is the source of ideas for the labor movement and works as a journalist for a revolution he observes the economic and social upheavals of his time very closely and also critically but how is he private let's take a look at this famous picture the man wears a suit he is sitting in an armchair clearly an educated middle-class with a middle-class self-confidence under the jacket lies a pair of glasses it's not a random snapshot the glasses are supposed to show

Marx

as an educated man as an intellectual he needs these glasses for reading and writing so often that he hangs them around his neck and has this white mane on his beard the mustache, which would be enough for three normal upper lip measurements, is hard to tame, a 57-year-old hipster is more of a rebel, someone who despite everything distances himself from bourgeois society, not only in this photo, as we will see, and that brings us to Chapter 1 Youth and Education

Karl

Marx

was born on May 5, 1818 in Trier, which at that time was part of a kingdom h Prussia belongs to his mother's name is Henriette and his father's name is Heinrich but only recently Heinrich's original name is Heschl KS Parents are Jews they come from old rabbi families but they turn away from the culture and religion of their ancestors on the one hand they are densely religious on the other hand Jews were often despised by their Christian fellow citizens in the 19th century in the profession they cannot rise in the administration that is why Jews who want to make a career who want to belong to Christianity about little

Karl

is baptized in 1824 his parents attach great importance to their education His son Heinrich is politically republican and liberal.

This also shapes the son, above all because he admires his father, who criticizes the existing conditions, a risk at the time how much he admires his father throughout his life carry around a breast pocket t in 1835 Carl goes to Bonn to study law he enjoys student life celebrates exuberantly and sometimes clarifies differences of opinion tangibly because

Marx

doesn’t allow himself to be said and he stands up for his opinion uncompromisingly that’s a character trait of his that you can remember with a Marc changes university to Berlin in 1836, he also changes his subject instead of law, he prefers to study philosophy and history, he joins the Junghägelians, these are young intellectuals who radically criticize social conditions in Prussia, because Prussia is at the forefront of fighting any kind of democratically revolutionary idea If you now want to find out what ideas were circulating back then, then please watch our video on the Hambach Festival, it goes a little more closely about this topic, you may want his fellow campaigners to change the state and the authorities quickly consider them dangerous revolutionaries After completing his doctorate, magst then returned to Bonn in 1841, but as a well-known member of the opposition, an academic career as a professor was not an option for him, so to Chapter 2

Karl

and the family magst was in quite a dead end professionally, but privately he found great happiness long ago

Karl

falls in love with the sister of his good friend Jenny von Westfalen already at high school Jenny is four years older than him noble and pretty very best match as they said at the time

Karl

passionately courts Jenny engaged already in the summer of 1836 after his first two semesters in Bonn the two secretly it will be seven years before they actually marry

Karl

and Jenny understand really well they respect and love each other I read in a biography the two see each other as two pillars of a bridge that doesn't mean that

Karl

is a faithful husband but this marriage cannot be broken by one or two infidelities as a father,

Karl

is tender and loving towards his child then describing his children later he is a family man it hits him very much that four of his seven children die at a young age but in the 19th century medicine is not as advanced as it is today and Child mortality is particularly high in the poorer parts of the big cities what

Karl

Marx

loves for his children does not prevent him from hiring his girls for all sorts of services they are secretary butler scientific assistants

Karl

Marx

is quite macho but he shares this attitude with pretty much all men in the 19th century, or at least with many, he doesn't think women are less talented or smart than men, no, the man just had his pants on back then, as they say Chapter 3

Karl

's career, but

Marx

is not only macho, he also sees himself as a poet and author as a journalist, more precisely as editor-in-chief of the Liberal Rheinische Zeitung for Politics, trade and commerce in Cologne he can write what he thinks and this is where he meets Friedrich Engels, who later became his friend and partner.

When the pro-democratic newspaper was then banned by the Prussian government in 1843,

Marx

left Germany and later went to Paris after Brussels the following years lay the basis for his fame together with Engels he took over the leadership of the Bund der Kommunisten here the Manifesto of the Communist Party was created, from which the following famous words come, proletarians of all countries unite, the Communist Manifesto is today, by the way, part of the world documentary heritage of UNESCO and after the Bible one of the most frequently published books in history we link you to the entire work again below in the info box Back in 1848

Marx

traveled to Germany with the firmly in his luggage and took part in the revolution in the country and then the became final expelled from Germany and goes to na ch London into exile and there he is then at home for the rest of his life Chapter 4 Difficult circumstances when the

Marx

family moves to Dean Street in the Soho district, they are once again short of funds

Karl

writes what correspondent for the New York daily Tribune brings that after all, regular income, on the side, a scientific basis for the political activity of the workers' party is to be created, but the project is progressing slowly because, on the one hand,

Karl

is a meticulous clerk who checks and checks everything three or four times, on the other hand, the work that will later be called the capital is one Thirdly,

Karl

writes an extensive essay, preferably at night given the situation in the small apartment, which is also understandable.

In addition,

Marx

is constantly busy raising money somewhere, but he actually approaches his closest friend Friedrich Engels for money, and he finances the friend. These are intellectual strength and visionary far-sightedness he Engels appreciates

Marx

again and again to work, but the obstacles to everything else are always illnesses

Marx

has a predisposition to respiratory diseases and also suffers from tuberculosis his liver pinches his bile hurts there are also eye infections headaches rheumatism hemorrhoids and pus boils so that others do not notice how limited his financial means are he has debts market manages a domestic help and at times even a secretary his wife comes from the nobility and is not supposed to work and in order to pay off the debts new debts have to be incurred and it then goes on and on like this all the time Suits furniture even

Karl

Student Degen moved and released again the man who dealt with the nature of money as intensively as only a few at the time can not go privately with money at least quite obviously because it is not only due to the circumstances that the family in so sch difficult circumstances there is a significant episode that begins at the end of 1863

karl

smutter dies and leaves him 580 pounds that would be around 95,000 euros today from someone else he got the equivalent of 100,000 euros at that time the family likes to move to a nicer house around the age of 10 room finally has you can live as you imagine beautiful furniture large receptions pets and so on a year and a half later in mid-1865 Marc writes again to Engels I’ve been living at the pawn shop for two months it’s fabulous to me so it’s inexplicable how the money disappeared even when the capital is finally finished and published the problems are not solved the first 1000 books lie like lead on the shelves in 1867 the work sold badly during his lifetime it is also not light fare you have to say magst analyzes in the capital the capitalist economic and social systems of d In three volumes he only publishes the first himself, Engels then publishes the other two after

Marx

's death and only then will the whole thing become a bestseller and thus Chapter 5 Criticism and anti-Semitism his scientific credo the omnibus dubitandum to all muscle doubts,

Marx

certainly transfers to much prefers himself as a self-questioning visionary but other mistakes he ruthlessly openly gets involved in arguments and loses every time he is emotionally ironic and sometimes critically destroys nothing and nobody is safe from his anger there are passages in

Karl

Marx

's work and especially in his letters that disturb us today, what is written there is anti-Semitic and racist, but

Marx

was actually an anti-Semite, especially in his private correspondence, when he gets emotional, he uses his words and also scolds more anti-Semitic, but he makes Jews not generally scapegoats for social or societal problems and he speaks out against discrimination but when

Marx

gets angry then all the dams break, so to speak, when he sits next to a woman at dinner he doesn't like then he later writes that she is the ugliest creature that he has ever seen President of the General German Workers' Association Ferdinand lass Seil he even racistly insulted him with the N-word the two have different political approaches and

Marx

is probably also jealous of the successful socialist of course he is a child of his time but even if the mainstream didn't mind at the time Jew-phobia in racism and macho-ism I don't want to apologize for anything at this point here

Karl

Marx

did not recognize the problems that lie in Chapter 6 what remains of

Karl

Marx

Karl

Marx

Marx

Marx
