A condensed guide to Marxism: from the critique of capitalism to the classless society - Robin Goodfellow

A paraphrase of Capital and the “Communist Manifesto” by former members of the Bordigist group, Communisme ou Civilisation (1976-1998), with chapters on the historical stages of capitalist development, the basic categories of the critique of political economy (labor power, value, surplus value, etc.)—with special emphasis on the increasing productivity of labor—the modern “middle classes”, accumulation and crisis, concluding with a chapter on “the classless society” that calls for the “constitution of the proletariat into a political party” (Engels) and the dictatorship of the proletariat in the form of a transitional proletarian state based on territorial soviets and labor coupons.
