In following the historical analysis of socialism offered by Karl, Marx and Friedrich Engels, the modern socialist movement, in this same period, was often used in connection with the, idea of socialism, though the former tended to have a more, militant connotation. This class conflict according to Marx is the cause of the collapse of capitalism and the rise of socialism. Socialism has been dominated by Marx’s theory, which brought to it an agency, the proletariat, a sense of historical destiny based on the ineluctable growth of the productive forces, and a critique of capitalism grounded in its own, political-economic terms.

In fact, it was the introduction of, syndicalism that brought about the phenomenal growth of. The question of how the transition from, capitalism to socialism would occur has been answered in dif-, ferent ways by different socialist theorists.
