: Don't forget that a dictatorship may also be exercised by a handful of persons, or by an oligarchy, OR BY A CLASS.

How exactly do 'classes', if there be such things I believe we are all more or less individuals ruled by free choices and sociology, rule again? Is it in the persona of a venerated leader or great thinker or under the iron heel of the party appointed storm trooper?

:Check out Lenin's "The Proletarian Revolution and the Renegade Kautsky" (re: How Kautsky Turned Marx into a Common Liberal).

Liberals arent that common unfortunately, well collectivist ones that is, why would I wish to consult a book by a man who's thinking was characterised by an obsession with power and a veneration for Necheyev the amoral russian vanguardist terrorist and who's actions where characterised by dismantling every workers co-op, commune, and independent effort that could not be subjected to the parties will.

Russia under lenin was just the Jacobin guillotine at work.
