Critique of the Gotha Programme is a critique of the draft programme of
the United Workers' Party of Germany. In this document Marx address the
dictatorship of the proletariat, the period of transition from
capitalism to communism, the two phases of communist society, the
production and distribution of the social goods, proletarian
internationalism, and the party of the working class.
Lenin later wrote:
The great significance of Marx's explanation is, that here too, he
consistently applies materialist dialectics, the theory of development,
and regards communism as something which develops out of
capitalism. Instead of scholastically invented, 'concocted' definitions
and fruitless disputes over words (What is socialism? What is
communism?), Marx gives analysis of what might be called the stages of
the economic maturity of communism.
(Lenin Collected Works, Volume 25, p. 471)
One of the essential writings of Karl Marx.
