Reading group: Marx and the state

Short url:

This will be the second meeting on this topic and we will look at Marx and the state with the following texts on 18th Feb, 7-9pm at Freedom Bookshop:
 David Adam: Karl Marx and the state David McNally: Thoughts on Marxism and the State An... FAQ Section B.2: Why are anarchists against the state?
 Some questions to consider:– What kind of role plays the state in Marxism and in Anarchism?
– What’s is the ‘bourgeois state’ and the ‘commune state’ ?
– What does ‘dictatorship of the proletariat’ mean?
Disclaimer: As always, we do not choose texts that we necessarily agree with, but that educate and allow debate.
