Laurie Penman I wonder why Mr. Rossi limited himself to a quarter of a cupful of water. The latter would have a better chance of a decent range, of course, but if that was less than feet a more traditional weapon is much faster in use and, I would have thought, more accurate.

Marxist communism Marxism A monument dedicated to Karl Marx left and Friedrich Engels right in Shanghai, China Marxismfirst developed by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in the mids, has been the foremost ideology of the communist movement.
Marxism considers itself to be the embodiment of scientific socialismand rather than model an "ideal society" based on intellectuals' design, it is a non-idealist attempt at the understanding of society and history through an analysis based in real life.
Marxism does not see communism as a "state of affairs" to be established, but rather as the expression of a real movement, with parameters which are derived completely from real life and not based on any intelligent design.
At the root of Marxism is the materialist conception of historyknown as historical materialism for short.
It holds that the key characteristic of economic systems through history has been the mode of production and that the change between modes of production has been triggered by class struggle. According to this analysis, the Industrial Revolution ushered the world into a new mode of production: Before capitalism, certain working classes had ownership of instruments utilized in production, but because machinery was much more efficient this property became worthless and the mass majority of workers could only survive by selling their labor, working through making use of someone else's machinery and therefore making someone else profit.
Thus with capitalism the world was divided between two major classes: Historical materialism goes on and says: This was another of the keys behind the consolidation of capitalism as the new mode of production, which is the final expression of class and property relations and also has led into a massive expansion of production.
It is therefore only in capitalism that private property in itself can be abolished. In between capitalism and communism there is the dictatorship of the proletariata democratic state where the whole of the public authority is elected and recallable under the basis of universal suffrage.

Through various forms of conflict, groups will tend to attain differing amounts of material and non-material resources (e.g. the wealthy vs. the poor).
Nationalization is merely state ownership of property, whereas socialization is actual control and management of property by society.
Marxism considers socialization its goal and considers nationalization a tactical issue, with state ownership still being in the realm of the capitalist mode of production; in the words of Engels: Not a handful of rich people, but all the working people must enjoy the fruits of their common labour.
Machines and other improvements must serve to ease the work of all and not to enable a few to grow rich at the expense of millions and tens of millions of people.
This new and better society is called socialist society. The teachings about this society are called 'socialism'. Leninism comprises socialist political and economic theories developed from Marxism, as well as Lenin's interpretations of Marxist theory for practical application to the socio-political conditions of the agrarian early-twentieth-century Russian Empire.
