Marxism in the Destiny of the Russian Revolution
A. V. Shalak
The article gives the analysis of the main concepts of Karl Marx's social theory with reference to the Great Russian Revolution of 1917. It is noted that under conditions of Civil war and intervention, socialism building was not the matter of primary concern retaining control over the territory was vital. The Marxist-Leninist ideology played mostly an integrative role for the Russian society. The struggle between the western geopolitical approach and the Marxist-Leninist ideology ended in the defeat of the latter one. The contemporary financial establishment shapes the behavior of large territories. The world is not trying to overcome alienation but redistribute the resources. And this, just like in 1917, limits the number of opportunities to get out of the global system of capitalism without upheavals even more.
