The tasks of the further development of the socialist way of life belong to the central questions of the advanced socialist society, of the manysided development of communist forms of social life. The bourgeois criticism of socialist life conditions takes advantage of the problems that arise in the relation between society and nature. It transfers the antagonistic character of the supposed contradiction between society and nature in capitalism upon the development of socialism. The core of the socialist way of life is in the socially useful work, i. e. a satisfaction of one's need of creative activity, from which other needs are derived, inclusive of consumption. The development of the way of life is thus determined by work and not only by extrapolation of contemporary material needs of consumption into the future.
