A frightful hobgoblin stalks throughout District 2. We are haunted by a ghost—the ghost of Communism! Join our brand-new District 2 Reading group for our first meeting. We will be reading and discussing the first half of the most famous and influential Marxist text of all time: The Communist Manifesto, by Marx and Engels. This rich text reveals new layers and ideas with every read, whether it is your first time or your fiftieth. Bring your friends and your revolutionary spirit to teach and learn from one another!

Required Reading: The Communist Manifesto (Preamble, Chapter 1: Bourgeois and Proletarians)
