There is a certain ambiguity in the Marxian attitude towards the national question, which is the first matter which I propose to examine. If you read the Communist Manifesto, you will find on the one hand a declaration that the workers have no country to defend; next, that their aim is to establish themselves as the nation; next you will find an economic or market theory of Nationalism and Internationalism - that the idea of nationality grows up only when the nationwide market has developed so that you would automatically expect a feeling of nationality to coincide with the size of a given national or nationwide market.
