The introduction of the railroad and telegraph in the first half of the 1800s sealed the rise of a single world economy. Marx and Engels understood the implications -- henceforth, workers everywhere were now up against the world capitalist class. This was the basis for our global movement's central slogan --- Workers of the world, unite! The Russian Revolution "complicated" matters -- two social systems, regulated by different laws, were now interacting and conflicting within a single world economy. A Marxist assessment of the opposed forces in the global class struggle is essential for liberation from capitalism.
