This J ,ul of ^ presenl based? man ,, Frbr'i" ACTS foRUm I he bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course when its complement vanishes, and both will vanish with the vanishing of capital. Do you charge us with wanting to -lop the exploitation of children by their parents? To this crime we plead guilty. But, you will say. we destroy the most hallowed of relations when we replace home education by social. and your education! Is not lhat also social and determined by the social conditions under which you educate, by the intervention—direct or indirect of society by means of schools, etc.? The Communists have not invented Ihe intervention of society in education: the) 'In lull seek in alter the character ..I thai intervention and to rescue edu- cation from the influence of the ruling class. The bourgeois clap-trap aboul the family and education, aboul lhe hal- leewcel co-relation of parent and child. becomes all the more disgusting, the more l>\ the action of Modern Industry all family ties among the proletarians are linn asunder and their children transformed into simple articles eef commerce and instruments of labor. "Bui you Communists would introduce etunmiinilv of women, screams the whole bourgeoisie in chorus. The bourgeois sees in his wife a mere instrument of production, lie hears lhal lhe instruments of production are to be exploited in common and. naturally, can come to no other e,inclusion than that the lot of being common lo all will likewise fall to the women. He has not even a suspicion thai lhe real point aimed at is to do away with the stains of women as mere instruments of production. For the rest, nothing is more ridiculous than lhe virtuous indignation of our bourgeois at the community of women, which they pretend—is to be openly and officially established by the Communists. The Communists have no need to introduce community of women: il has existed almost from time immemorial. Our bourgeois, not content with having lhe- wives and daughters of their proletarians at their disposal—not to speak of common prostitutes—take thc greatest pleasure in seducing each oth- e-i-" w ives. Bourgeois marriage is in reality a system of wives in common and thus, al the most, what the Communists mighl possibly be reproached with is that they desire lo introduce, in substitution for a hypocritically concealed, an open- l\ legalized community of women. For the rest, it is self-evident that the abolition of the present system of production inii.-l bring with il the abolition of the community of women springing from NEWS, February, 1955 that system, i.e., of prostitution both public and private. The Communists are further reproached with desiring to abolish coun- tries and nationalities. The working men have no country. We cannot take away from them what they have not got. Since the proletariat musl first of all acquire political supremacy, niii-l rise to be tbe leading class of the nation, must constitute itself the nation, it is. so far. itself national, though not in the bourgeois -ense of the word. National differences and antagonisms between peoples are daily more and more vanishing, owing lo the development of the bourgeoisie, to freedom of commerce, to the world market, to uniformity in the mode of production and in the conditions of life corresponding thereto. The supremacy of the proletariat will cause them to vanish still faster. I nited action, of the leading civilized countries at least, is one of the first conditions for tin- emancipation of the proletariat. In proportion as the exploitation of one individual by another is put an end to, lhe exploitation of one nation by another will also be put an end to. In proportion as the antagonism between classes wilhin the nation vanishes, the hostility of one nation to another will come to an end. The charges against communism made from a religious, a philosophical and. generally, from an ideological standpoint, are not deserving of serious examination. Does it require deep intuition to comprehend that man's ideas, views, and conceptions—in one word, man's consciousness — changes with every change in the condition of his material existence, in his social relations and in his social life? What else does the history of ideas prove than that intellectual production changes in character in proportion as material production is changed? The ruling ideas of each age have ever been the ideas of the ruling class. When people speak of ideas that revolutionize society, they do but express the fact that within the old society the elements of a new one have been created and that the dissolution of the old ideas keeps even pace with the dissolution of the old conditions of existence. When the ancient world was in ils lasl throes, thc ancient religions were overcome by Christianity. When Christian ideas succumbed in the eighteenth century to rationalist ideas, feudal society fought its death-battle with the then revolutionary bourgeoisie. The idea of religious liberty and freedom of conscience merely gave expression to Pace 63
