    A reader has emailed this question:

    In the review of ‘Policing The Crisis’,the reviewer claims that, ” Marx once described ‘anarchy’ as the ultimate aim of the proletarian movement…” Do you have a citation for this statement?


    It’s from Part VII of “Fictitious Splits in the International” drafted by Marx and Engels in 1872 which
    can be found here.

    Here’s the quote:

    All socialists see anarchy as the following program:

    Once the aim of the proletarian movement — i.e., abolition of classes — is
    attained, the power of the state, which serves to keep the great majority
    of producers in bondage to a very small exploiter minority, disappears,
    and the functions of government become simple administrative functions.
