Why the Communist Manifesto is a Fraud A Tract Book Essay By Anthony J. Fejfar, B.A., J.D., Esq.

, Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. Fejfar As a jurisprudential author I suppose that I am entitled to engage in historical interpretation as much as the next person, so, here I go. The Communist Manifesto was apparently first published in the year 1848. Now, the story that I have always been told about Karl Marx, the author of the Communist Manifesto, was, that he was married, had two small children, and was poor. Seemingly not able to afford an office to write from, Marx is said to have authored the Communist Manifesto at a table at the British Museum, in London, England. One can almost imagine the poor Marx huddled with his poor wife and children around a heat vent at the British Museum in the middle of winter, with Marx taking a break between chapters of his manuscript. Now, I would like to suggest that the foregoing hagiography is not only improbable, but fraudulent. It is my argument that Karl Marx was being paid a stipend

by the British government to write the Communist Manifesto so that the document could be used to destabilize both the German and Russian monarchies. I find it hard to believe that the British Museum would let Marx come to his table day after day, week after week, month after month, without protesting or kicking Marx out of the Museum. No, Karl Marx was being paid to be there by the British Secret Service or some other clandestine branch of the British government, and obviously Karl Marx had a table which was officially reserved for his use. Thus, the Communist Manifesto was undoubtedly

published and distributed by the British Government in both Germany and Russia in an effort to expand British influence in Europe. The Communist Manifesto is a fraud.
