The Communist Revolution is the most radical rupture with traditional property relations; no wonder that its development involves the most radical rupture with traditional ideas.
We have seen above, that the first step in the revolution by the working class, is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class, to establish democracy.
The proletariat will use its political supremacy to wrest, by degrees, all capital from bourgeoisie, to centralise all instruments of production in the hands of the state, i.e., of the proletariat organised as the ruling class; and to increase the total of productive forces as rapidly as possible.
Of course, in the beginning, this cannot be effected except by means of despotic inroads on the rights of property, on the conditions of bourgeois production [ . . . ]
These measures will, of course, be different in different countries.
Nevertheless, in the most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable.
1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of
land to public purposes.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means
of the national bank with state capital and an exclusive
6. Centralisation of the means of communication and
transport in the hands of the state.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the
state; the bringing into cultivation of wastelands, and the
improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common
8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies,
especially for agriculture.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries;
gradual abolition of the distinction between town and
country, by a more equable distribution of the population
over the country.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition
of child factory labour in its present form. Combination
of education with industrial production, etc.
Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, The Communist Manifesto, 1848
