    Reading marxists is becoming really boring for me. They all use diffrent language and say the same thing. They fight each other who understands Marx correctly...

    Adds to the context of the debate around the Russian revolution, Kautsky’s formula is essentially that the proletariat is ever growing due to the tendency towards monopolization of capitalism, and these new proletarians join the struggle for democracy. So democracy is inherently part of the working class struggle. This is largely used by Kautsky to emphasize the belief that the current state can be transitioned into a socialist democracy through parliamentary means.

    One of the more realistic accounts of how Socialism might come about. Despite the same shortcomings of all Marxist works (how on earth would such an economy function, why would anyone work, the b.s. about History), Kautsky creates a more plausible means of bringing people dedicated to that philosophy into power without a brutal dictator. Basically, the revolution should occur with ballots rather than bullets; without the support of the people, the revolution would require an oppressive governmen One of the more realistic accounts of how Socialism might come about. Despite the same shortcomings of all Marxist works (how on earth would such an economy function, why would anyone work, the b.s. about History), Kautsky creates a more plausible means of bringing people dedicated to that philosophy into power without a brutal dictator. Basically, the revolution should occur with ballots rather than bullets; without the support of the people, the revolution would require an oppressive government to maintain power, which hardly benefits the people the revolution is supposedly all about. Of course, Kautsky's version has all of the shortcomings of democracy. Who participates directly in the democracy? A truly direct democracy is impractical, but the representative form leads to corruption as politicians try to bribe constituents with public funds. Even if they are all "good" leaders, they will disagree as to what is best for society, as Hayek pointed out in The Road to Serfdom. Nothing will be accomplished without a decision maker who will have power for a period of time long enough to see plans carried out; that implies a dictator or private property (effectively a dictator over small amounts of property). Worth reading. The disaster that was the U.S.S.R. was pretty well foreseen by Kautsky.

    "As has already been said, if the title of Kautsky's book were properly to reflect its contents, it should have been called, not 'The Dictatorship of the Proletariat', but a 'A Rehash of Bourgeois Attacks on the Bolsheviks.'
