Revolutionary Action: Balancing Spontaneity and Bureaucracy

Abstract. This article examines the coexistence of spontaneism and bureaucratism in political action, drawing on the ideas of Marxist philosopher George Lukács. The article discusses Lukács’ views on the role of revolution in socialist transformation, and his understanding of the importance of spontaneism and bureaucratism in the revolutionary process. It argues that revolution is a complex, multifaceted process that involves both spontaneous and planned elements, and that the success of a revolution depends on the ability of the working class to balance these elements and to act in accordance with a clear and coherent theory of socialist change.

Uncovering the Power of Ideology

ABSTRACT. Ideology is a complex concept that refers to a set of beliefs and values that shape an individual’s understanding of the world. It can be based on political, economic, social, and cultural beliefs, and can vary widely depending on an individual’s experiences and personal values. The French Ideologists were a group of philosophers and intellectuals in the early 19th century who were known for their radical and progressive ideas, which were influenced by Enlightenment thought and the French Revolution.

Marxist critics argue that ideology serves to obscure the true nature of social and political relationships and to present a distorted view of reality that serves the interests of those in power.
