Bourgeoisie Communism

We can all look down into the depths of slavery to the crippling effects of ownership that our ancestors allowed to control the world slaves used and abused, raped and whipped Yet slavery was not the only abuse of the time's Cotton factories in England, in Manchester employed mainly women from only nine years old to work on the floors of the cotton factory's Women paid to breath the cotton fibres lungs devastated with asthma destroyed by fibres the women died by the time they turned twenty eight destroyed by the factory owners in their need for wealth Mary Burn's an illiterate Irish woman showed Friedrich Engels' the poverty and suffering of the working class the proletariat of Manchester England had two and a half thousand cotton factory's Friedrich Engels was the best friend of Karl Marx together they wrote the Communist Manifesto Yet I can not imagine that their dream of communism was the same a Lenin's or later Stalin's Marx wanted the proletariat to rise up against the bourgeoisie which is what happened in Russia but instead they exchanged the bourgeoisie of money for the bourgeoisie of power politicians Politicians that lived in luxury well the proletarians lived, in lives of famine Stalin afraid of internal up risings against his control killed millions keeping peace, with the promise of making a better world Tomorrow was always going to get better Tomorrow when we rule world we will know real communism the utopia of a loving world Yet the politicians lived in the bourgeoisie world living the lap of luxury, dancing, on well feed stomachs well the working person, carried on being abused just like they did in the cotton factories of Manchester all through out history the world has never learned you don't make a better world by killing people you don't make utopia by creating famine you create a better world by making friends you create a better world by creating employment you create a better by overcoming poverty you create a better world by caring about people the bourgeoisie create, factories, jobs and wages The proletariat or workers need decent wages when people have money, can afford to be consumers factories, shops and restaurants, need customers its only in creating a balanced economy That cares for all, your different groups of society that realises both rich and poor are important when you build a society that respects all people then in harmony you create peace
