The Failure of Communist Dictators
If there is any seemingly fatal attack on the theory of communism, it is the failure of the communist dictators. When Lenin took control of the U.S.S.R., he instilled a seed of pugnacious idiocy and a superiority complex. Here is where the ensuing greed began: the family tree of communism arising from self-worship.
After Lenin's reign, the criminal Stalin took control of the territory. His megalomania led him to believe that all people of the world wished to share in his own triumph. So, in the end, he sought to convert other nations - decrying cultures of Asia. So, he killed millions. As if he had no beneficent character - a trait that is required for such communist systems to flourish. The price of the installment of a universal proletariat was the freedom of all who labored with good intentions: making their way in a world of differences. But the divide between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie was still great nonetheless. Stalin was a fool. We can all be the bourgeoisie.
The Korean communist party soon followed, and then the Chinese in 1921. Of course, Korea split into two factions, and thus arose North Korea. The leaders of North Korea, through that nefarious kin, are the epitome of failure; failure of striving for altruistic equality, failure of providing freedom, failure of developing adequate work forces, failure in advancing morally, failure of stabilizing the gap between the economic classes; failure of humanity.
It is wrong, we all know, to judge a book by its cover. That saying is tortuously cliche but it is sound. Some of the most interesting novels have the most hideous cover art. How, then, can we judge a strategy by its leaders?
