The Dictatorship Of The Proletariat

Karl Marx was a prophet who predicted the dictatorship of the proletariat and the dissolution of the kinds of governments western man has experienced since before the age of Victoria. He believed that history’s class struggles provide evidence of the seeds of this yet to be achieved dictatorship which will form as all professions and wage earning occupations fall into a single class.

Marx’s co-theorist Engels in his 1892 pamphlet Socialism: Utopian and Scientific shows that communist theory was a product of a belief in the scientific certainty of the senses.

Since communism required an acknowledgement by all workers, “WORKING MEN OF ALL COUNTRIES UNITE” that as members of the largest social class whose labor produced capital, they possessed the power to control capital and govern themselves in their own interest.
