1. According to Marx and Engels, why is capitalism not in the interest of the proletariat? What do Marx and Engels think the proletariat should do about it? Should their struggle be solely on a national basis within each country or should it be an international struggle?( Pg. 56-64 Luxemburg pdf)
2. After the revolution that Marx and Engels advocate, how do they envision the communist State to operate? Who will control the means of production? How will finance, production, distribution, and consumption be organized by the communist State?( Luxemburg pdf)
3. Does Rosa Luxemburg think that capitalism can be overcome through reforms by democratic means or does it require a revolution to achieve a truly socialist society? Why or why not?
4. Has the abolition of capitalism and the establishment of a socialist society ever been achieved through electoral democracy? How does this historical fact support Luxemburg’s argument?
5. Why is Lenin opposed to the freedom to critique? How does this betray the authoritarian tendency in Marxism?
6. According to Lenin, why are trade unions not a feasible organizational structure for provoking a revolution? What advantages does a vanguard of professional revolutionaries, as opposed to a trade union, have that make it the ideal form of organization to execute a revolution?
7. According to Mao, what is the role of guerilla units in a revolution? Can a revolution be won by guerilla units alone? What type of operations should guerilla units be engaged in?
8. From what populations should guerilla units be drawn from? Why is the support and collaboration of the civilian population essential to guerilla warfare? Should the command structure of guerrilla units be centralized or diffuse?
9. If you were a leader of a revolutionary struggle what existing groups in our society would you recruit to serve as guerilla forces? What preparations should be taken to arm and supply such units during a revolutionary struggle? What operations should they engage in when the revolution starts?
