I'm confused. What does it mean for workers to own the means of production? What would a communist state without a government look like? Is "workers own the means of production" just a platitude, or something more?
I think the gist of Marxist Communism is to violently rise up, seize the infrastructure necessary to production from the rich, and put in any sort of system to keep the rich from reattaining any of that previous leverage over the working class.
"Workers" in this context means the new ruling caste which purports to represent the working class.

Life was harsh on the steppe. You were either nobody's bitch, or everybody's bitch. Every now and then someone ran out of steppe tribes to fight, leaving only the civilized world around them to target.
There's also a possibility that an invasion by Altaic speakers may have had an influence on the development Korean and Japonic language and culture.
