People like to point out that Stalin was just a dictator. But Lenin killed plenty, intentionally and accidently. And the system allowed Stalin to take power.

There's also a part of Marx that in my mind at least shows it's a utopia. That goverment will just disappear. Um, right.

I agree with ebacons' statement about a ruling class and budgets about the economy & society. And back to how much and type house I have - that is economics... and personal.

Even so, Stalin scared the shit out of Lenin. As bad as Lenin was, Uncle Joe was orders of magnitude worse.

There's even a fairly convincing body of evidence that Stalin had Lenin killed.
