... no credit is due to me for discovering either the existence of classes in modern society or the struggle between them. . . .

What I did that was new was to demonstrate:

  1. that the existence of classes is only bound up with particular historical phases in the development of production

  2. that the class struggle necessarily leads to the dictatorship of the proletariat

  3. that this dictatorship itself only constitutes the transition to the abolition of all classes and to a classless society
Marx to J. Weydemeyer, March 5, 1852

Especially in Europe where it helped to concentrate wealth in the hands of a minority and to make the huge majority propertyless this instrument was destined, first to give social and political domination to the bourgeoisie, but then to give rise to a class struggle between bourgeoisie and proletariat which can end only in the overthrow of the bourgeoisie and the abolition of all class antagonisms.

F. Engels
The Part Played by Labour in the Transition from Ape to Man

Socialist dreams turned into socialist struggle of the millions only when Marx's scientific socialism had linked up the urge for change with the struggle of a definite class.

Outside the class struggle, socialism is either a hollow phrase or a naive dream.

Petty Bourgeois and Proletarian Socialism.

Thus, present-day society is splitting up into two big camps; each camp is organising in a separate class; the class struggle that has flared up between them is expanding and growing more intense every day, and all other groups are gathering around these two camps.

J. V. Stalin, The Class Struggle

The interests of the class struggle of the proletariat against its native exploiters and oppressors are not in contradiction to the interests of a free and happy future of the nation. On the contrary, the socialist revolution will signify the salvation of the nation and will open up to it the road to loftier heights.

For instance, the press comes within the scope of ideology. Some people say that the press has no class nature and is not an instrument of class struggle. They are mistaken.

Beat Back Attacks of Bourgeois Rightists

As Socialists we base our political policy on the class struggle of the workers.
