Establishing the proletariat as the ruling class after a socialist revolution in order to create a transition to communism. This strategy includes developing democracy insofar as appropriate and suppressing - by force when necessary - resistance by exploiting classes or any other elements hostile to the new regime.
In traditional Marxist-Leninist thinking, this transition period is the time for a new regime to restructure society along socialist lines.
1. Any revolutionary scheme which envisions an idealized end-point is difficult to apply to social reality.
2. The assumption that any class, such as the proletariat, are better administrators than any other class is not viable. Thus, some other selection criteria is always applied.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
