"but because of democracy. "

"Social-Democracy, however, wants, on the contrary, to develop the class struggle of the proletariat to the point where the latter will take the leading part in the popular Russian revolution, i.e., will lead this revolution to a the democratic-dictatorship of the proletariat and the peasantry. "

the soviet union was democratic... how did that turn out?

there's a reason why america was founded as a constitutional republic and not a democracy... and there's a reason why there's such a profound push towards a democracy

This might be the single worst argument against democracy I've ever seen. Try "tyranny of the majority" instead if you want to argue against democracy and make the point on why America is a republic.

my point was in fact about the tyranny of the majority... that's what formed the soviet union... you weren't aware?

the thing you so called "socialists" don't get about "socialism" and communism is that at its core its about  stripping away rights to reduce people down to the lowest common denominator... for "equality"

which any sensible person realises right away is not desirable in the least if you actually want to help people, especially the poor


i'm still waiting to hear about how hitler privitised everything and yet still controlled the economy btw
