(3.Mai) I would argue that the lasting legacy of Marx 200 years after his birth comes from the conclusion he and Friedrich Engels drew in their 1848 publication The Communist Manfesto:
„The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Workers of all countries unite.“
