B' e feallsanaiche poileataigeach a bh' ann an '''Friedrich Engels''' ([[IPA]]: ''fʁiːdʁɪç ˈɛŋəls'', [[
Wuppertal|Barmen]], [[28 an t-Samhain]] [] – [[5 An Lùnastal]] []). Bha e gu mòr an sàs ann an [[Comunnachas]]. Sgrìobh e [[am Manifesto Commanach]] le charaid, [[Karl Marx]].
=== Beachd air na Gàidheil ===
Bha Engels den beachd gun robh cuid de na nàiseanan ann an Eòrpa - nam measg, an Gàidheal - gun eachdraidh agus mar sin gun robh iad nan ais-ghnìomhaiche gu nàdarra. Sgriobh e ann an "Der Magyarische Kampf":<blockquote>"There is no country in Europe which does not contain in some corner one or several ruins of people, left-overs of earlier inhabitants, pushed back and made subject to the nation which later became the carrier of historical development. These remains of nations which have been mercilessly trampled down by the passage of history, as Hegel expressed it, this ethnic trash always becomes and remains until its complete extermination or de-nationalization, the most fanatic carrier of counterrevolution, since its entire existence is nothing more than a protest against a great historical revolution.
