Overview:

  • like Marx, he saw society in terms of class conflict
  • the solution to the exploitation of the working class was to rise up, destroy the capitalist system and the state that supported it and replace it with a workers' state

What were his ideas? What did he represent?

  • he represented an uncomprimising kind of socialism, implacable in its opposition to capitalism. He was even more revolutionary in his outlook than Marx
