"The Dictatorship of the Proletariat" - A Presidential Competency Test

Compare and... Contrast?



From "The Naked Communist," page 57:

[Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels felt that speeding up the evolution of society towards Communism] could be done in three ways: First, by wiping out the old order. "There is but one way of simplifying, shortening, concentrating the death agony of the old society as well as the bloody labor of the new world's birth - Revolutionary Terror." Second, the representatives of the working class must then set up a Dictatorship of the Proletariat. Joseph Stalin described the things which must be accomplished during this period of the dictatorship:

  1. Completely suppress the old capitalist class.

  2. Create a mighty army of "defense" to be used "for the consolidation of the ties with the proletarians of other lands, and for the development and the victory of the revolution in all countries."

  3. Consolidate the unity of the masses in support of the Dictatorship.

  4. Establish universal socialism by eliminating private property and preparing all mankind for the ultimate adoption of full Communism.
