Luckily the socialist society’s were such a huge success : Stalinism, Maoism and the success-story…
Michel Kerger

None of that sounds like socialism to me. Just a bunch of assholes slapping a term they didn’t fully understand onto a thing they did so it would seem less improper to decent people.

One could argue that all of these problem reigns were the result of capitalism; ultimately their power and rule boiled down to having enough money to buy other people into harassing and suppressing other people, as well as ensuring the weak and exploited did not have the means to fight back. None of those leaders would have succeeded without employing capitalism as their primary tool with which to claim monopoly on wealth and power.
