Then riddle me this: WHY has every country over the past one hundred years that has been identified themselves as Communist/Socialist ALWAYS became dictatorships instantly?
If you're going to play the "true Communism was never achieved because it comes AFTER socialism" card, I'm familiar with that aspect as well.
Marx claimed that a "dictatorship of the proletariat" had to be set up. He couldn't explain it, neither could Engels nor Lenin. Every time the dictatorship of the proletariat was set up, it quickly became the dictatorship of the party.
Yep, that's unfortunate. I guess it's very easy to set up a dictatorship once a system is changed so fast, no matter what it is. I still think it could work if it was elected in a democratic country, in a peaceful times like now. After all socialism is all about worker class free will, unlike capitalism.
