Permanent Revolution

Discipline: Political Science

Theory of revolution of the Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky (1879-1940).

Socialist revolution and the overthrow of capitalism will only be complete when they are worldwide. There should therefore be no pause in revolutionary activity simply because power has been seized in a single country.

This theory is thus opposed to that of socialism in one country.
