(p.30) 3 Marx and Germany: The “List Critique”
Communism and Nationalism

Roman Szporluk

Oxford University Press

The chapter discusses Marx's views on competition when it came to Germany's future. Marx perceived nationalism as a bourgeois ideology. He thought that the “List Critique” served as a spokesman for the German bourgeoisie. The “List Critique” provided a detailed elaboration of the Marxian position on the German Question by focusing specifically on German nationalism. The List represented the aim of the German bourgeois and that was to establish the domination of capitalism. It clearly shows how Marx was merciless in his assessment of the German bourgeoisie. He thought that nationalism was for the interest of the bourgeoisie and that “national liberation” stood in the way of the real one.

Keywords:   bourgeois ideology, List Critique, German bourgeoisie, Marxian, capitalism, national liberation
