We have seen above that the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class to win the battle of democracy. The proletariat will use its political supremacy to wrest, by degree, all capital from the bourgeoisie, to centralize all instruments of production in the hands of the state, i. e., of the proletariat, organized as the ruling class; and to increase the total productive forces as rapidly as possible.

According to this excerpt from the Communist Manifesto, what is the most important thing the proletariat must do to begin a class revolution?


Gain political power over the bourgeoisie.


Gain more wealth in order to defeat the bourgeoisie.


Gain power over the means of production.


Gain equal rights as those granted to the bourgeoisie.


Gain control over industrial productivity.
