I didn't know you had communist leanings.
Communist or socialist?
I'm only asking because I'm a bit of a mixed bag politically, some right wing views, some left.
I overwhelmingly support universal healthcare for example but I'm vehemently against paying cash benefits to lazy bastards who don't want to work.
The bourgeoisie keeps more and more doing away with the scattered state of the population, of the means of production, and of property. It has agglomerated population, centralised the means of production, and has concentrated property in a few hands. The necessary consequence of this was political centralisation. Independent, or but loosely connected provinces, with separate interests, laws, governments, and systems of taxation, became lumped together into one nation, with one government, one code of laws, one national class-interest, one frontier, and one customs-tariff.
