-==== Chaulieu–Montal Tendency ====+ 
 +===== Chaulieu–Montal Tendency ​=====
 The Chaulieu–Montal tendency is the political philosophy of the French libertarian socialist group '​Socialism or Barbarism'​ and its British counterpart '​Solidarity',​ following from the belief that what the working class was addressing in their daily struggles was the real content of socialism. It was critical of Leninism, rejecting the idea of a revolutionary party, and placing an emphasis on the importance of workers'​ councils. The Chaulieu–Montal tendency is the political philosophy of the French libertarian socialist group '​Socialism or Barbarism'​ and its British counterpart '​Solidarity',​ following from the belief that what the working class was addressing in their daily struggles was the real content of socialism.

 ===== Communization ===== ===== Communization =====
 Communization means the abolition of property itself along with any state-like institutions claiming to represent a given subset of humanity. In these accounts humanity as a whole, directly or indirectly, would take over the task of the production of goods for use (and not for exchange). People would then have free access to those goods rather than exchanging labor for money, and distribution would take place according to the maxim "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need." ​ Communization means the abolition of property itself along with any state-like institutions claiming to represent a given subset of humanity.

 Council communism is a current of socialist thought characterized by its opposition to statism and its advocacy of workers'​ councils and soviet democracy as the basis for dismantling the class state. It is opposed to the party vanguardism and democratic centralism of Leninist ideologies and it contends that democratic workers'​ councils arising in the factories and municipalities are the natural form of working class organization and authority. Council Communism also stands in contrast to social democracy through its formal rejection of both reformism and "​parliamentarism"​. Council communism is a current of socialist thought characterized by its opposition to statism and its advocacy of workers'​ councils and soviet democracy as the basis for dismantling the class state.

 ===== Situationism ===== ===== Situationism =====
 Situationist theory represents an attempt to synthesize this diverse field of theoretical disciplines into a modern and comprehensive critique of advanced capitalism. The situationists recognized that capitalism had changed since Marx's formative writings, but maintained that his analysis of the capitalist mode of production remained fundamentally correct; such as his theory of alienation. They asserted that the misery of social alienation and commodity fetishism were no longer limited to the fundamental components of capitalist society, but had now in advanced capitalism spread themselves to every aspect of life and culture. Situationist theory represents an attempt to synthesize this diverse field of theoretical disciplines into a modern and comprehensive critique of advanced capitalism.

 Western-Marxism emphasises Marxism'​s philosophical and sociological aspects, and its origins in the philosophy of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and the more humanistic works of "Young Marx". Western Marxism arose in opposition to the form of Marxism codified in the Soviet Union, and over time shifted from a political movement to an academic one. Western-Marxism emphasises Marxism'​s philosophical and sociological aspects, and its origins in the philosophy of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and the more humanistic works of "Young Marx".
