While there is no national consensus on an exact definition of the term, the idea of self-determination generally rests on four core principles: 1) the freedom to develop a personal life plan, 2) the authority to control a targeted sum of resources, 3) the support to achieve personal goals, and 4) the responsibility for contributing to one's community and using public dollars wisely.

A nation can be roughly defined as a people with a common language and history who inhabit a definite area, though there are exceptions to this. Oppressed nations are those forcibly subjugated by another nation, a key feature of the emergence of capitalism and imperialism. Self-determination is the right of oppressed peoples to govern themselves, including the right of nations to independent existence as sovereign states. Marxists support national liberation movements seeking to end national oppression while at the same time promoting working class unity. The right of self-determination was a key part of the Bolshevik program for dealing with the many nationalities in czarist Russia. For the first time in history, the Bolsheviks in 1923 established a bicameral government with two equal bodies--the Soviet of the Union and the Soviet of Nationalities--to guarantee representation for the more than 100 nationalities in the USSR. The constitution adopted at that time stated in Article 6 that the right of secession could not be repealed, nor could the boundaries of the republics be changed without their mutual consent.

As the Civil War began in 1861, southerners claimed the right of self-determination, the right to establish their own independent government. Since the majority of southerners desired independence for the Confederacy, they believed the North's effort to prevent their secession was contrary to its own professed belief in democracy.
The principle of self-determination, often seen as a moral and legal right, is that every nation is entitled to a sovereign territorial state, and that every specifically identifiable population should chose which state it belongs to (for instance by plebiscite). It implies that all nations - usually meaning an ethnic group that self-identifies as a nation - have an equal entitlement to a sovereign state. It also implies that no other form of state is morally legitimate - certainly not if it includes an ethnic group who do not wish to be included in it.
