Karl Marx and the Industrial Revolution
Karl Marx was a communist. Karl Marx was a Jewish german man who converted to Christianity. Karl was born in Trier. His dad forced the family to become Christian so they could get a job. He was against the Industrial Revolution. He was upset at how much workers we treated and the thing that children were working in the factories. He wanted the people in the factories to be treated fairly and respected. After Karl Marx had died his ideas and thoughts were known as Marxism. So because of the Industrial Revolution, Marxism became very popular with nations like China and Russia. Still today we have some communist countries. For example China, Cuba, North Korea, Laos, and Vietnam are the only countries left that are communist.
