MARX VS CAPTAIN CAPITALISM (Cartoon)!

Marx VS Captain Capitalism!

"The workers control the means of production" 
(hypnotised character in the cartoon)


Mere control?
Marxism, as opposed to Marxism-Leninism, envisioned a post-Capitalist society in which the workers could own the means of production, could occupy and take possession of them; and not merely "control". In Soviet Russia, Lenin's regime and derivatives allowed a mere supervision of Capitalist owners on the part of the workers, whilst repressing dialectical attempts on the part of the proletariat to overthrow Capitalist ownership. This was carried out for the sake of the "development of productive forces", within the framework of the wretched non-Marxist praxis of the two-Stage theory.
The Capitalists, in Soviet Russia, kept existing by allegedly "making the revolution hand at hand with the workers".
Was Marx a staunch supporter of the two-Stage theory?
Was Lenin's "State Capitalist way to Communism" what all Marx envisioned for a Communist society?
No.
But this won't be discussed here, insofar as it has already been discussed in my article on Marxism-Leninism and the political problems of mainstream "Marxism" and my article on the Two-Stage theory and the question of Frontism.
For the moment enjoy the cartoon!
Whomever wants to read about my stance on the Occupy Wall Street movement may conveniently read my article the political character of the Occupy Wall Street Movement!
Whomever is interested to know more about all these dynamics may conveniently read my article/pamphlet MARX'S LABOUR THEORY OF VALUE AND THE HUMBUG OF LIBERAL ACCOUNTANCY (Davide Ferri) 

Stay tuned!
