In this video, Francesco Merli introduces a discussion on Marxism and the National Question at the recent World School of the International Marxist Tendency. Francesco analyses the origin of the nation state from a materialist perspective, and looks at the dialectical method that Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Trotsky took in approach to the question of nations, self-determination, and national liberation movements, in contrast to their peers in the First and Second Internationals.
