In his CIVIL WAR IN FRANCE, Marx pointed to the concrete measures taken by the Paris Commune, including the abolition of the state, as harbingers of a new form of radical democracy, communism.  He discussed the nature of that communism and the way it could be achieved in CRITIQUE OF THE GOTHA PROGRAM, where it would culminate in a society based upon the principle of from each according to their abilities to each according to their needs.  This and other aspects of Marx’s writings bearing on alternatives to capitalism will be the subject of free and open discussion.
