Other Names: Revolution in communism
Nature: A revolutionary system must expand if it is to maintain its momentum; communist systems are born of revolution. Expansion and projection of a national communist revolution is often used as a tactic to increase national solidarity by diverting attention away from national issues over which there are in fact deep divisions. In this respect, an outward projection of communist ideology may be as much a manifestation of weakness as of the efficacy and unity of the proletarian revolution.
