“By that approached the realization of the tremendous task which Marx and Engels posed for their supporters in 1850: to make the revolution permanent, using the anti-capitalist programme of the petty bourgeoisie and peasants as a starting-point, ‘until all more or less propertied classes have been forced out of their domination, the state power has been conquered by the proletariat and the association of the proletariat has advanced so far, not only in one country but in all dominant countries in the whole world, that the rivalry of the proletarians has ceased in those countries and at least the main forces of production have been concentrated in the hands of the proletariat’ (Werke, 7, pp 284, 252)” [Reidar Larsson, Theories of Revolution. From Marx to the First Russian Revolution, 1970]
