THE WORKERS In a socialist society, the workers collectively own and democratically control and manage the means of production (e.g. land, factories & natural resources). They are responsible for the distribution of the fruits of their labor to the society based on the principle, “From each according to his {her} ability to each according to his {her} work.” Their objective is to manage and administer the production of goods and services generated by their labor, always seeking to expand the capacity of production for the sole purpose of increasing their quality of life. There are 2 sectors in “the working class.” One sector comprises the urban industrial workers whose labor power, collective interaction and literacy skills enable them to produce the major industrial goods needed by the masses. The other sector comprises the rural agricultural workers (peasants), the largest work force in mal-developed state. Largely illiterate, their labor power is individual or family based and used to grow crops and livestock on small plots of land that they own or rent. Under socialism, the workers are guided by a revolutionary party, one that requires principled behavior and study and one that is constantly seeking to heighten the consciousness of the society for organized change to crush the exploiter, the capitalist and to build socialism.
