    Look in the mirror. I think you will find the person you are speaking of. Here is a little help on the subject. Tell me what do you think of the third aspect of Marxism, Advocacy of proletarian revolution? Namely the expropriation of private property? " Another one that doesn't know what marxism is." Indeed.. How cute...

    Speaking at a United Steelworkers event on Monday,
    Nancy Pelosi railed against the wealthy and income inequality in America:




    "We’re talking about addressing the disparity in our country of income, where the wealthy people continue to get wealthier, and some other people are falling out of the middle class when we want to bring many more people into the middle class. But that disparity is not just about wages alone. That disparity is about ownership and equity. It’s all about fairness in our country."

    For the uninformed, like me and others, could you make comparison list between Marxism and capitalism?

    Ah, I don't think anyone could make that comparison because we haven't evolved yet enough to embrace the superior Marxian system.

    Ricksfolly,

    For the uninformed, like me and others, could you make comparison list between Marxism and capitalism?
    Gladly ,although this is a simple comparative analysis. I no doubt may miss points on both sides so feel free to supplement this with your own research. This is also a very extensive topic so I will stick with one subject at a time.

    Marxism
    State/Commune ownership and Control of Capital

    Capitalism
    Individual ownership and Control of Capital

    In the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx stressed the importance of the total abolition of privet property and that the means of production should be owned by the state. He thought that the Proletarians would lose their own class power once they take it away from the bourgeoisie there by making the society as a completely classless.

    From the Communist Manifesto:

    When, in the course of development, class distinctions have disappeared, and all production has been concentrated in the hands of a vast association of the whole nation, the public power will lose its political character. Political power, properly so called, is merely the organized power of one class for oppressing another. If the proletariat during its contest with the bourgeoisie is compelled, by the force of circumstances, to organize itself as a class, if, by means of a revolution, it makes itself the ruling class, and, as such, sweeps away by force the old conditions of production, then it will, along with these conditions, have swept away the conditions for the existence of class antagonisms and of classes generally, and will thereby have abolished its own supremacy as a class.

    You have an estimate on that evolution?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
