Marxism is a method of socio-economic analysis and worldview based on a materialist interpretation of historical development, a dialectical view of social transformation, and an analysis of class-relations and conflict within society. Marxist methodology informs an economic and sociopolitical enquiry applying to the analysis and critique of the development of capitalism and the role of class struggle in systemic economic change.

In the mid-to-late 19th century, the intellectual tenets of Marxism were inspired by two German philosophers: Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Marxist analyses and methodologies have influenced multiple political ideologies and social movements throughout history. Marxism encompasses an economic theory, a sociological theory, a philosophical method, and a revolutionary view of social change. [1]

It is not merely that Marxist socialists are history’s most prodigious mass murderers; it is that, like their siblings in atrocity, the National Socialists, they are mass murderers as a matter of confirmed moral principle.


Although socialists are quick to recall rights-violating aspects of American history in their condemnation of capitalism, this is absurdly dishonest. Yes, Americans perpetrated slavery, brutally persecuted blacks throughout the Jim Crow-era, and have committed other injustices. But these moral crimes were in overt violation of their own principles of each individual’s inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. For the Americans to obviate the injustices they perpetrated, they needed not to change their principles but to consistently live by them.


Marxists are another matter.


Given their explicit imperative to annihilate class enemies, marxists perpetrate murderous atrocities as an inalterable result of enacting their fundamental principles. For them to relinquish the bludgeon of brutality and to embrace civilized coexistence would require renouncing the principle of unremitting class warfare—that is, it would require repudiating Marxism. Until and unless marxists are willing to do that, the murders they commit, the murderers they excuse, and the other crimes they perpetrate are both consistent with and necessitated by their foundational precepts.

Marty Alston Soviet's failure has nothing to do with Marx. They were not true Marxists.

Dev Achmed @Marty Alston marxism is based on class warfare, Soviets did just that.

The essence of Marxist theory is unremitting class warfare. Because these economic classes are groups, not individuals, it is the group—whether the owning class or the working class—that is the unit of moral value.


"These fundamentals of Marxist-socialist theory extend, in one form or another, into every version of undiluted socialism. Consider, for instance, National Socialism (Nazism).


"The National Socialists held that an individual’s value (or lack of it) is determined by his race, by his genetic lineage, by the ethnic collective into which he is born. A member of the 'master race' is morally virtuous; a member of an 'inferior race' is morally degenerate.


"Whereas Marxists and communists hold economic groups as the units of moral assessment, National Socialists regard racial groups in that manner. Each holds a specified collective—in contrast to the individual—as the basic criterion of value.


"According to these and all forms of full-fledged socialism, a person is not an independent being but a cog in a collective. To the National Socialists, a person’s intellect and character are hard-wired into his racial makeup; these are 'in the blood.' To the Marxists, a person is born into an economic class, reared in its mores, trained in its worldview, formed by its philosophy. Thus, for both, all of a person’s ideas—whether via nature or nurture—are products of his group identity.


"Members of the owning class, for example, conceptualize human society and history differently than do members of the working class. The owners uphold principles of market economics and the law of supply and demand, including for wage rates. The workers, by contrast, support coercion to increase wage rates via mass organization, union power, bloody strikes, and government intervention. The owners maintain that individuals have inalienable rights to property, that the government must protect such rights, and that the initiation of force must be banned. The workers maintain that the initiation of force is justified so long as it redistributes wealth and/or advances social justice. According to Marxist socialism, the owning class has its logic, and the working class has another. Which one is correct? Hitler, let us recall, had an answer regarding which racial group was right; similarly, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and all Marxist-socialist leaders had a response for which economic class was correct. They demonstrated it in practice.
