The rule by the working class would be a society without
people such as Ebert & Roeper that simply watch movies
& get paid. Rewarding laziness is a crime, people that work
all day in construction or the sweaty job of farming will be rewarded for doing REAL work. Not ignored & even disliked for not being 'clean.' They do the hard jobs that allow us to have those little things we take for granted. It all sounds impossible to create a society like this, but there's a first time for everything. The current society looks up to the people that make millions in the stock market or people like

Complacency Has Run Rampant
The Revolutionary Marxist Movement has Deradicalized as the need for action has become Imperative!
As marxist groups deradicalize across the globe a heightened need for party organization and direct action has increased. Ever since the subsequent demise of the USSR, globalist imperialist powers wars and occupations have heightened the necessity for revolution. The decrease in party militancy has resulted in a compromise against the struggles of underdeveloped countries and the struggles of the workers within those countries. Lenin's thesis on imperialism has only become more true as the communist parties of the world have become less radical.

Rethinking Modern Democracy
Democracy by Random Selection not Elections
Until the 19th Century, democracy was associated with selection of offices by lottery, not election. Lottery is ultimately fair and egalitarian, allowing everyone to participate who so wishes, merely by putting one's name in the pool of candidates. Modern methods of statistical science allows us also to create social administrative bodies that are representative of the population. In Cottrell and Cockschott's Towards a New Socialism, they recommend that referenda be combined with functionally-specific administrations of officers selected by lot to create a free, democratic society.

I hate to break it to you, but government period does not work. The bourgeoisie were proletariates. They rose up, and became a dominant class. The only way for effective government is complete and utter global representation with out corporate influence. However, this would involve many confliction view points. One would have to unite the entire globe under a single relgion, culture, ect...

We need radical changes in our system of live, stop the unfairness but when we create our Communist world we mustn't forget that we are doing this for the greatness and weaknisses of Humanity. So we should proof our selfs better then the bourgeois and not take revenge. Just take every Human as he is. Why should we do different! that's why we need to bring all the left party's togehter and fight under one flag. Then we could have councils of philosofers and a goverment chosen by ALL people, in our guidlines.

Laziness should NOT be rewarded
A capitalist soceity works for those with ambition & a desire to better one's self and thier family.
One of the problems with capitalism is the potential for certain people to be "left out" or have no true means of supporting themselves. Now, there can be many reasons for this. If for instance they are physically or mentally unable to support themselves then there are social programs allready in place to help those people, granted it's not perfect & should be modified. Then there are those who simply do not want to work and contribute to soceity. Should the goverment support them? I think not.

- blame other people (I did it myself)-
- use poison which will 'evaporate' inside the body-
- when you are a doctor: just give your patient an overdosis morphine!
- when you have power, use that power to get communists to high places, replace all capitalists in high positions! In this point of the Revolution you are permitted to LIE!!

Communism? Not with human nature
Human Nature Cannot Allow the Existence of a Communist Society
The following sentence basically summarizes the opinion of most individuals who simply cannot agree with the concept of true communism and the theories of individuals such as Karl Marx: Human nature cannot allow a communist society to exist. The reason human nature is the primary barrier to a classless stateless society is that humans need some type of state to preside over them in order for them to have any hope of living and peace and harmony with other people. Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels forgot about one important word when formulizing their communist theories: greed.

We have never been truly free. Only decieved in a thousand ways have we been, only exploited in a thousand ways have we been, only manipulated in a thousand ways have we bee. Thus, we have never truly been at all. We have labored for a lie, we have labored against liberty, and all without knowing it. As there is no Santa Claus there has never been democracy for us. What then is to be done? First, we can never be free if we are not as one with our cause. We can never be free as long as our oppressors have power. Thus we must unite and with that power we take power from the now powerful.

It Is An Impossoble Theory
I dont belive that it is possible to achieve a total communist goverment. It is human nature to try to gain more than someone else which rules out total and complete equality. I believe that a system,like America, where someone from a working class can work their way up and become the leader of the country,with no restrictions as far as religion,gender,race,etc. are concerned. So while the idea of communism is actually good, it is fairly safe to say that it could never be put into affect that it was meant to be put in because there will always be someone there who will try to gain power.

Being a marxist communist, I can't help but support the socialist cause in the world today, as it is the necessary interim step between the crumbling system in which we are all currently imprisoned, and the possible peaceful, equal, and prosperous future we could all enjoy. I am concerned however by the trend of Bourgoise Socialism(Faux Socialism)in the world. Any time that the wealthy elite of the capitalist system decide to 'allow' the workers the luxury of vacation, or health care, or education, it is touted as a step toward socialism, but is simply a clever method of keeping us docile.

So they deal with the mental stress of runnig the buisness, while their labourers put in the physical stress and get payed maybe 5-30% of what the boss pays him self, what is the difference? wouldent the labourers have a shorter life expectancy? wouldnt the boss have a longer life expectancy? so why are we rewarding people for having an easyer life? we are not they have the power to so they do just like an evil dictator has the power to do as he pleases. die capitalist pigs die.

Comunism is fundamentally flawed
Communismm is fundamentally flawed and is in fact an evil plot by Marx
The theory of communism is fundamentally flawed.
In the perfect world proposed by Marx, the majority of the population should be good people and don't have evil intentions. But the fact is that every body has a dark side. In the society proposed by Marx, the dark side of people will easily be unleashed, which is exactly what happened in the existing and existed communist states.
In a sense, true communist state really never existed, and will never exist. Because communism simply doesn't work.
Communism is in fact an evil plot by Marx. Marx was a smart man, he knew human nature very well.

Where did it all go wrong
True Communism
Interestingly enough, my interest in Communism was sparked off by learning about Soviet Russia for GCSE History. With some further reading and research I began to realise that the Soviet Union was not True Communism. It was an exploitation of the Marxist Ideals and has therefore tarnished the Communist reputation of it being a cruel and ill-practiced dictatorship. I have always despised the view that Communism doesn't work, because how can you say if it works or not if it has not been properely practiced? I intend to change peoples views. I myself have written a manifesto on True Communism, going strict

Why communism will never work....
I am a Venezuelan and an American, I know both sides of the story. I know that Hugo Chavez(president) sits on the largest oil reserve outside the Middle East and 80% of the population is in poverty. He is also wiping out the middle class business owners buy keeping all the U.S. dollars a redistributing them how and when he sees fit. Meanwhile his people are starving. It is human nature for people to compete and want more than the next person that is something you cannot change. that is communism.

The potential progress of a Communist revolution
I have to say after recently discovering the flawless progress this website nails the first step (which im sure most are already aware). The common goal of an ideal communist would really be peaceful and progressive anarchism. The question is how do you get there. The immediate response would be revolution. However, as Marx said you cannot have a revolution without a politisised proletariat, which is extremelt true. And I can see that this is the purpose of this site. The next step would be the violent revolution. Why violent?

I ask you, K@rLo$ of Beirut, to rationalize your opinions of the events that the capitalist should apologize for, stated in your post dated 27-May-2003. You stated many implicit wrongs of free society, but have yet to admonish about the effects of socialism. Every type of society has its history of accomplishments and mistakes, but it is up to the individual to reason through these occurrences and arrive at truthful conclusions. Keep in mind, taking advantage of the innocent is a result of a lack of representation under anarchy, socialism, or authoritarianism, not capitalism in a free society.

A trend towards the middle class having control in governing their affairs is a logical choice. A clear path for some of the good aspects of America to re-emerge is what I see. I think that the middle class should govern themselves...however it wouldn't work in this day and age without integrating it slowly. The general public knows very little of socialism except how evil their government say it is. Education, without sounding too radical would be key. Presenting the information in a non-aggressive way
would give people the chance to decide for themselves.

Oppression is not the answer
It is within the individual and his selfishness that society will continue to succeed
Capitalism invokes different perceptions from different people. Supporters of capitalism often envision freedom, liberty, morality, spirituality, and opportunity. Supporters of socialism often see capitalism in a different way, often using words such as selfishness, greed, hedonism, nationalism, and the like to describe it. Both views are correct.

The market is the most efficient way to generate goods and services to satisfy legitimate needs. What is wrong is the capitalist form of ownership of production means. The unemployement which arises from the market mechanism can only be solved by the state developping a social economy sector - public goods that do not attract competitive producers - and employing there all those who cannot find work in the competitive (market) sector.

practicality of communism
communism as everyone is aware is a form of socialism, communism is perhaps more attractive as it is less about economics and more about the people. Many intellectuals have been drawn to communism due to its promise of an ideal society in which all can be regarded as equal. However has communism ever worked? The rather depressing answer to that would be no, as the great political theorists who concocted the communist manifesto and other great political works forgot one very important thing, human nature.

Make Everyone Equal
We live in a world where everyone is unequal. There are those who possess advantages over others by natural, given, and obtained means. It is because everyone is unequal that conflict of interest exist. Those that are alike, group themselves together because they share the same characteristics. They attempt to push their agendas on those unlike them because they feel their agenda is better. Some groups use their advantages to acheive this goal. Groups with less advantages do not get heard as often. All this being said, the solution to eliminate this problem is to make everyone equal.

although rather new to me are the true answer to many problems in todays non utopian society. i believe that in enforcing such rule we would promote a feeling of world peace. i also think thats such shall be the case in an very while. wereas there are so many who attend schools many dont belive in the ways or actions of officals of the school, and therefore cling to and idea of a perfect world where there is no classes also making them more important in the playin out of gods plan in modern society.

Communism is one layer. fine.
It is like a potato and you get Vodka from it too.
Capitalism is an onion. Damn.
Its OK to lightly garnish a cheese pasty with it, but when its in its raw form it stinks.
The class struggles within capitalism brings tears to my eyes - all layers of society all trying to get on top but always downtrodden by the class above it.

the death of commercialism
the downfall of commercial media
The proletariat, in essence being the most nescessary componant of society,truly deserves the freedom of thought not allowed them by the current propagandic trend of the media. However, comrad, I don't clearly enough see who is to stop the monitoring of commercial media from becoming the censorship of all things published by any company- mass production of any document being nescessary for a truly competent campaign to influence anyone. Furthermore, where is the line drawn on what is commercial media? The public, I have observed, is rather fond of fiction.

Endless, endless theory

I'm pleased to see someone left in America able to defend the classic Leninist theory of the state.

However, endless theorizing must be balanced with action. The most important thing to do is to be a bolshevik and find the ways to organize workers into a revolutionary party. The most difficult thing to do in the US of A! But Lenin had no use for "talking societies." Marx and Engels set the pattern. They didn't just theorize, they organized the League at the same time.

The reason why marxism-liberalism or a similar political ideology is the natural way to go for every soceity is because it´s the only way. Capitalism is not an option if one wants a real democratic system to work. Modern people (i.e. western people) are eysily persueded by media etc into thinking that capitalism = democracy, but the thruth is that capitalism can only survive if the factors of exploatation exist, the ruling class will always benifit in opressing the working class, not only in an isolated system like a nation, but alsow on a global scale, 1:st world contries are rich because...

gambling with government
The idea of a socialist state is great, but getting there is the hardest part
The main problem I have with a socialist/communist state is this: to start a workers revolustion you have to have lots of workers, and you have to have a leader (just like lenin), but when the government is overthrown the leader has to... just... give up all his/her power. But anyone with a sane mind would not do that when they have the power of a nation in their hands.
When in the socialist state if worked properly it would be great. But it is very hard, and too confusing to get too. Plus theres the factor of casualties in the fight for socialist rule...

The Folly of Lenin
The foolish thing that Lenin did was that he created a philosophy that was based on the speeding up of the communist utopia's evolution. This disagreed with Marx's view that socialism, let alone communism, could and probably would take centuries to appear as capitalism had to replace feudalism. Therefore socialism must be aimed for by a slow transition as an immediate one would meet the problems encountered by Lenin. Also in a slow transition the benifits can be seen more clearly keeping the majority of people happy.

State control of commercial media will backfire
Volunteer media organizations have neither the time, nor the energy, nor often the skill to present all the news. While that may be changing with the advent of the Internet (e.g. Slashdot), it is still difficult for volunteers to do in-depth, detailed stories in their spare time. Eventually, someone who wishes to focus on a hobby has to turn it into some sort of job in order to survive (witness 8-Bit Theater), and commercial media is reborn as a natural evolution of volunteer media. I'm not fond of the big companies myself, but controlling all commercial media is more chilling than Falwell.

Working party rules with a capitalist world economy
The main problem with a socialist or communist state in modern times is that the world as we know it is based on a capitalist economic model. Therefore, if we are realistic, we realize that any moneyless state (with the possible exception of the experimental model outlined in the essay) will quickly be doomed. As such, even a socialist nation would need to have a money-based economy. The only way to accomplish this while remaining close to Marx's original ideas would be to collect all money made in various jobs by the citizens and then redistribute it equally amongst everyone.

A needed symposium
Why the people must organize to the social movement.
We live in a world that is so full of people that a movement would need more than one prophet to be successful. That is why we must band together to form our ideas into doctrine rather than dogma. A productive symposium of enlightened, compasionate, and philanthropic individuals could create the potential for real change and positive social evolution. With all of the splinter groups out in our world, we, those in search of a truly noble and humanizing system, have to make our revolutions carefully and with the foresight and presence of mind that so many others fail to possess.

I'm all for revolution and the idea of overthrowing bourgeoisie rule in favour of a truly democratic society, so soldier on, comrades!
However, I think you are being naive when you assert that this will be achieved in the 21st century.

Step 1) Gain complete control over the state after manipulating a discontent populace to revolution.
Step 2) Install yourself as leader of the revolution, rulthlessly consolidate your hold on power.
Step 3) Brutally oppress the populace, and use fear, intimidation and bloody purges to end any will for resistance.
Step 4) Eliminate all who disagree, disapprove, or othewise refuse to bow to your every whim.
Step 5) Create an army of servants to carry out your whims using the powerful force of fear (especially for their families).

How to help the revolution
Too Idealistic?
I understand that this site is very reasonably dealing in the realm of Marxist theory. But I would like to know exactly what one can do to further communist interest other then simply a propaganda campaign. We must take some sort of action. The workers will never succeed without violence if the world of information is closed to the class without wealth thier must someway to grab attention. Especialy in america how has the Enron Scandal come and gone without our cause being advanced. Communism is considered a joke and we must make it serious concept once again. Help the revolution.

TAKE THE POWRER BACK NOW!!!!!!!!
The revolution is close but not without the peoples' help.
In 1967 the one man who i belive was ever a credit to socialism died. But he left his work to be done. Che guevara wanted to change society and the capitilist regime, but could never manage to fulfill his dream. But now people are starting to think again and we are very very pissed off. We don't like the fact that we work day in and day out with out any questions and are then payed a pittance. We don't like the fact that politicians are throwing empty promises at us without any regrets. We don't like the fact that we work our hardest but are never appreciated.But now we can TAKE THE POWER BACK

The true wealth and beauty of our fine world will only be visible when the filth and corruption of capitalism is removed. Communism is the torch by which we will be led to freedom- freedom to live and enjoy nature without the scum of a corrupt society obscuring our view.

INVESTMENT IS IMPERITIVE !!!!!!!
Commitment and Investment
Well if the workers do run themselves will they run themselves effectively? they have always been the people who have been controlled, never in power. Why would a system like that be developed if the workers could rule themselves in greater efficiency?

The main problem the workers rule will have I believe is mantaining effieciency and productivity, workers who run themselves tend to become lazy and ineffiecient as there is no competition, and they are usually underfunded due to red tape and other political commitments.

It can work-with investment and commitment, thats all it needs.

Praxis Tovarich, makes perfect
Theoretical clarity is vital; but without a party we are mere philosophers...
As an active member of the communist movement but also a loather of the dogmatism and lack of room devoted to practical theoretical discussion which has often characterised the Stalinist parties as well as the reformist fake 'left' , I welcome this use of technology to discuss the ABC's of dialectical materialism and communism, but do we put our theory into practice? There are plenty of people discussing communist theory, but very few in the vanguard of thinking who translate their communist conception into action and are part of Marxist-Leninist, Trotskyist organisations.

There's nothing stopping you...
Moneyless economy is a goal without any obstruction.
As I read the essay on the transition to a moneyless economy I am trying to think of what's stopping you from implementing this now. I can think of nothing that the 'bourgeois' can do to halt any volunteer efforts to create, "'a gift economy' that would operate without money, wages, commodities or exchange..." You can put this into practise now!

I don't think it is practical. I imagine it would impose a huge decline in standard of living. You must eat. Therefore you must grow food. House to live in? Clothes to wear? Does this economy allow division of labor?

"Problems of Communism"
To overcome the problems of communism, and/or defeat the kapitalist enemy.
Looking back at the communist states of the 19-th century, there have been some major faults, not following the true ideological purpose of Marxism, has led to the shifting of power. In Russia for example, the regim of Stalin just shifted the lost power of the few burgeos to the few people that had a political position. To overcome this apperent mis-enterpetation of the book of Marx, has it´s diffuculties.

A fatal flaw perhaps?
We should try to remember...
...that the flaw in all social programs such as this is the rule of enforcement. In the utopian communist view all members of society would conform freely in a democractic way. Right?

But, how do you create a society without overthrowing democratic principles? How do you re-distribute land and wealth without stealing it forcibly from its owners?

Just food for thought- personally, I think this is ample proof for the need of extensive discussion on the socialist stage of revolution.

Comrade you are more on the right track than any I have yet come across. I particularily like your phrase about Proletarian dictatorship in a MODERN SOCIETY, in a nutshell it says it all about the outmoded views which have become associated with Lenin. On technology I concur while your view about the outward political nature of porletarian parties within the dictatorship of the proletariate is spot-on.

Forking the revolution

The dynamics of the information war.

The principles of the information war demands that independent political organisations be allowed to exist, and also that these organisations are permitted to 'fork', reinvent and remerge themselves as a result of the internal struggle to win support of the masses.

Organisations that should not exist or are formed improperly dissolve quickly. Organisations which are relevant and useful to the masses stay so long as they remain so.

The result is a healthy ecosystem of political trends that debate along lines that matter - creating vital knowledge for the building of future societies.

Just Say "NO!" To Bolshevism

Proletarier aller Länder, vereinigt euch!

Great essay! Most people don't seem to realize the huge differences between communism and Bolshevism. Most people who consider themselves "communists" are Leninists in one form or another (sometimes disguised as Trotskyists, Stalinists, Maoists, etc.), and often a true communist will call him/herself a socialist or some other term. In my opinion, it is up to us Marxists to reclaim the words "communist" and "communism", as well as the color red, which was first used in the Commune of Paris.

Prolétaires de tous pays, unissez-vous!
Working men of all countries, unite!

Patriot/Not KKK, Inquisitor or Bourgeois

Like Marx

There is much flowery speech like the original communist manifesto.

Hard to summarize but I'll try. I'd say you have an understanding of modern culture in your use of words like "suck", "shit", "crap" and the like. Like those communists who rallied my brother in law and other young influential minds in the KwangJu riots and other demonstrations throughout the world, as they did here in the US in the sixties. (My father was shot by one when he returned from Viet Nam.) It's easy enough to exagerate "the rule" of the bourgeoisie and characterize their intentions as overt and corrupt. Just as Christians have been likened to the Inquisitors and the Crusaders.

The SCF and You

We know where you live, or rather we'd like to. There's a lot the SocioCommunist Front want to know about you, because you are what makes this great world we live in. Unfortunately a lot of politicians have forgotten that you elected them, and that they stand for you. We won't just stand for you, we'll stand of you.In a world of people, anyone elected to govern them has got to do everything they possibly can for them. We want to keep in touch with you, and we won't forget that you put us into government. Most of us are fed up with politics. The SCF are going to get you involved. You count!

between trotsky and stalin

finally a healthy way to look at the past but to many name changing.

I like the way you look to the future positively and don't take sides in the great personality war (Trotsky and Stalin). I also like the way you look at the good parts of the Russian revolution and reject the bad. On the other hand I still think Communism should still be called Communism and maybe with change to democratic-communism. Also I think dictatorship of the proletariat is still a useful phrase.

The Stalin Exam

A Do-It-At-Yourself Medical Procedure

Have you checked your head for a Stalin lately? If not there is a simple self-exam procedure
that you can perform in the privacy of your own home that may save costly medical expenses
later in life. The growth of dictators on the cerebrum can cause loss of ability to think clearly
and a difficulty in orienting oneself to the actual world.

Proletarian Democracy

How will economics, politics and culture work when the working class runs modern society?

Working class rule has never existed except in embryonic form (the Paris Commune of 1871 and early Soviet Russia). Nevertheless it will emerge triumphant in the 21st century. How will a modern society suppress the former ruling bourgeoisie without also suppressing the independent political life of workers?
