Psssst! Hey Decky. I'm a socialist.
You spoke of the working class ruling through their party. That would mean that the party's struggle to establish socialism succeeded, was finished, stabilized, and was functioning with the party ruling via true and reliable actual
control in fact
, not just in name. But what happened only got as far as the implementation of a strategy to attempt the establishment of socialism. Socialism never was, in fact, established. And the effort degenerated into state capitalism before it could finish and succeed. The strategy failed. The effort failed. And we are still trying to come up with a strategy that actually reaches the goal.
Government is properly for people, and money is not a form of speech.
