Marxism is dialectical, Novack explains. It considers all phenomena in their development, in their transition from one state to another. And it is materialist, explaining the world in motion that exists prior to and independently of human consciousness.
Dialectical materialism, he argues, is a tool for workers and youth who seek to organize a proletarian revolutionary movement. By fighting to win political power, working people can break the constraints of the decaying capitalist system and open up the struggle for the next stage of human society, socialism.
