It’s thought to be one of history’s first examples of workers taking power, but the Paris Commune that overthrew the French government in 1871 is shrouded in…

    @PavedStones It is an important diference between Marx and anarchists:Marx
    wanted centralization but anarchists didn’t,because centralization means
    concentration of power in the hands of some and it would stay in the way of
    real democratic worker’s revoluiton.

    The ideas of Marx and Bakunin/Kropotkin weren’t all so different at all,
    you know. Do read Marx some day, plugging your fingers into your ears and
    shouting “Stalin Stalin Stalin” every time Marx is brought up is silly and
    childish and makes you sound like Ron Paul lol. Oh and anarchists are
    “reds”, too.

    @LeninistStalinMarx I’m not a Leninist but I will admit that Lenin was
    important in spreading socialism, as well as bringing progress to Russian
    society. I’m just personally against the authoritarian means he used to
    accomplish these things.

    Pretty insightful agolosha, though to expand on your point it was also a
    power play. As we have seen while the Third Estate (the Bourgeoise) grew in
    wealth they were discontent that they were locked out of the structures of
    power dominated by the Church and the Nobility. to acheive their goals they
    would ally with the peasentry yet failed when the peasent’s positions and
    traditions came under attack.

    I don’t think Marx ever said abolition of private property was to create
    equal rights. To abolish alienation and class society more like. Equality
    is outdated? Not needed? Who will give ‘the people’ more substantial money?
    (and what money do they currently get, and from whom?). Workers’ becoming
    small capitalists doesn’t resolve the question of alienation or class
    society, and obviously a world full of small capitalists would not be some
    paradise if it were even possible. Read some Marx.

    What would you recommend, comrade?

  11. PavedStones says:

    And just for info: “Communism in the Marxian sense refers to a classless,
    stateless and oppression-free society where decisions on what to produce
    and what policies to pursue are made democratically, allowing every member
    of society to participate in the decision-making process in both the
    political and economic spheres of life.”

    @cris750 Screw the Menshiviks also,they didn’t care about the people,it
    would have been cool if the anarchists had won.

    @brahmbhattbhavna So your saying that Lenin and Mao were successful? They
    failed to bring about true socialism and caused more harm than good in my
    opinion.

  15. PavedStones says:

    @reactiontosociety I think you are just blindly prejudiced against Marx. To
    start with, he wasn’t really a theorician of socialism – practically never
    wrote anything about socialism – but rather a socialist theorician of
    capitalism. Second, to the extent he did write about socialism, what he
    pointed to as the greatest example of a socialist society in the making in
    his epoch was, well, surprise, the Paris Commune. And he was for the
    abolition of the state, too.

  16. CapitalistOverlord says:

    Lenin and Stalin were two men that have slandered the word “Communism.” It
    is because of these men that Communism is hated across the world.

    Vive la Commune!

  19. reactiontosociety says:

    marxist communism can only lead to slavery, because any socialist system
    with a centralized government will lead to stalinism or maoism. c’mon reds,
    read some kropotkin and grow up.

  20. dogsters666 says:

    George Orwell wrote in his 1984 that there are three struggling classes:
    The high class – keeps their rank in noble place The middle class –
    replaces the higher classes The low class – eliminate the class system
    However, the middle class uses the low classes aspirations for their own
    goal. When the high class is eliminated then they will learn from the
    terrors of history to secure their place in he top, with the low class
    still remains at the bottom.

    “Hundreds”? The Commune executed some 60 people and then burned down the
    guillotine! Thiers killed in a week about the same number of people the
    Jacobins killed in a year in whole France!

  22. Pileckij says:

    FUCK you ALL. LENIN WITH ENGELS AND MARX WERE TRYE MARXISTS. STALIN WAS
    MORE FASHINT NOT MARXIST,
