This new thesis will eventually attract another antithesis, and produce a new synthesis. For Marxists, Dialectical Materialism is the driving process that moved matter from inorganic state into life, then to animals, then humans, and finally organized social institutions like governments and nations. Whatever advances the proletariat the working class is morally good.
Whatever advances the cause of communism is morally good, whatever hinders its advance is social and human evolution is morally evil.
The killing fields of Cambodia, the Soviet Union, and the Ukraine, as well as the mass murders in China were the practical results of proletariat, or class morality. Karl Marx made it very clear that the origin of the species contained the scientific basis for his views on the class struggle. However, Marxist dialectical materialism called for something more than just the gradual progress of natural selection. The dialectic needs a theory with clashes and leaps. This is satisfied with punctuated equilibrium, which says that each species stayed the same for long periods of time equilibrium and evolution happened through occasional ruptures or leaps punctuations from one species to another.
The brain is just a collection of nerves and blood vessels and tissues that have been programmed to react a certain way. Just like Pavlov conditioned his dogs to salivate when they heard a bell, humans are conditioned to feel patriotic when they see a flag, or to rescue children from drowning.
This conclusion follows logically from their materialist philosophy only matter exists. In this scenario, there is no need for government because every man can be trusted to act responsibly and rightly, which also negates the need for the church or family. Marxists generally trace law back to the concept of private property. Law was devised by the propertied class to protect its property. Marxists refer to this as bourgeois law.

The basis of proletariat law is to protect social or state property. Socialist law grants certain human rights but only such rights as assist the advancement of socialism and communism, or only such rights as advance evolution. Once the full socialist system is victorious, however, the proletariat class experiences its victory of communist paradise and law ceases along with the state. Marxists are willing to call for a one-world dictatorship, or state, of the proletariat because they will control such a government through Marxist law.
According to the Marxist worldview, once every trace of bourgeois ideology and all the remains of capitalistic tradition have been eradicated a fully communist society will exist. In such a society, government will become unnecessary and with away. Because the Marxist believes that modes of production form the foundation for society, he concludes that anything wrong with society is the result of imperfect modes of production. Societies have been improving because the economic systems on which they have been founded are gradually improving: slavery gave way to feudalism, and feudalism to capitalism.
Because of the flaws in capitalism, it will give way to socialism. In a socialist society, all private property will gradually be abolished and man will no longer oppress his fellow man in an effort to protect his private property.
Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
When all private property and consequently all class distinctions have withered away, the slow transition from socialism to the highest economic form, communism , will be complete. Marxist-Leninists begin with eternal matter and spontaneous generation, and view history as a progression of biological and economic evolution which will ultimately result in a society of communist man in a communist paradise. Man is merely the consequence of these impersonal happenings, but man is given a minor role to play, to nudge history along a little faster toward its predetermined end.
