Storyboard Text

  • Friedrich Engels (1820-1895)
  • "The state arises on the ruins of the gentile constitution..."
  • "The Origin of the State" (1851)
  • Our modern form of social order was elicited by the growing economic opposition due to the division of peoples into classes.
  • Organizations made up by lineage cannot succeed when citizens get together and fight for their rights and responsibilities for their roles as citizens.
  • The State was created to maintain social order.
  • WTF
  • We are here to displace the old organization founded on kinship.
  • Citizens of state according to domicile.
  • The unity of minorities can overthrow certain societies were power and greed wants to take over.
  • Thus, to ensure order despite fluctuation in power dynamics, a power “greater” than society itself became necessary to keep conflict within the desired limits.
  • These factors threatened the stability and distribution of power.
  • "This public force exists in every state; it consists not merely of armed men, but also of material appendages, prisons and coercive institutions of all kinds... of which gentile society knew nothing." - Engels
  • Engels ultimately hopes to illustrate the way tactics to maintain societal order morphs with the changing composition of society. With the fall of social stratification comes the fall with state organization.
  • "On the day when the thermometer of universal suffrage shows boiling-point among the workers, they as well as the capitalists will know where they stand."
