“the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat [lowest social or economic class] to the position of ruling class, to win the battle of democracy.” For what purpose? To “abolish private property”; to “wrest, by degrees, capital from the bourgeoisie [middle class]”; to “centralize all instruments of production in the hands of the State” (Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto)
