In this brilliant pamphlet, Josef Stalin clearly sets out the differences between Marxism and anarchism.
What are the beliefs of the anarchists? How are they different from the socialists and communists? In particular: is capitalism the enemy, or is the state machine the enemy?
What do the anarchists think workers should do if they are successful in getting rid of exploitative capitalism? What are the anarchists’ criticisms of communism?
What are the basic ideas and beliefs of the communists that make Marxism a useful guide to action, and empower workers to overthrow the old system of exploitation and build a new, peaceful and truly representative society? In what way is socialism more ‘scientific’ and systematic?
