What is the Feature of Contradictions?, What Does It Mean?July 1, 2021
The contradictions being different in every form of motion.
The idiom characteristic of contradictions is used in five senses:
1. Contradiction is different in every form of movement,
2. A form of movement is different at every stage,
3. Being different in various forms of movement within a movement form,
4. Contradictions in various forms of action within a form of movement are also different at various stages.
5. The contradictions in all these are different in every aspect.
The fact that the contradictions in each form of action are different expresses the feature of the contradictions. Every form of action carries within itself its particular contradictions. This particular contradiction separates that thing from all other things. That’s why a seed becomes a flower, a seed an apple, a seed a human, and that’s why no two flowers, two apples, two people are the same.
The contradiction, which is different in every form of movement, is also different in every stage of that movement. That’s why Chinese socialism (socialism, communism N.) Russian collectivism, Russian collectivism Cuban collectivism and so on. cannot be the same. Therefore, the contradiction that transforms capitalism into socialism is different in the transition period to socialism, it is different in the establishment period of socialism, and it is different in the establishment period of socialism.
The contradiction within each form of movement is also different in the various forms of movement within that form of movement. That is why the contradiction that develops capitalism is different between the toilers and the bourgeoisie, between the peasants and the landlords, and between the colonies and the imperialists.
Contradictions in various forms of movement that occur within a form of movement are also different in its various stages. That is why the contradiction between the working people and the bourgeoisie is different in the establishment stage of capitalism, different in the stage of large industry, and different in the stage of imperialism.
It is different in every aspect of all these other contradictions. That is why the contradiction between the worker and the bourgeois is different for the worker and different for the bourgeois.
Because of all this, the solution of every feature of the contradiction requires another method. In order to find and apply this method, all these features must be known. This is the “principle of the concrete solution of concrete conditions”. “If we do not know the generality of the contradiction, we cannot find the general cause of the movement we are studying, but if we do not know the nature of the contradiction, we cannot find the special quality that distinguishes the movement we are studying from all other movements.” The idiom ‘property of contradictions’ is synonymous with ‘specificity of contradictions’ and ‘relationship of contradictions’.
