    Karl Marx-democratic dictator-?

    https://tvthek.orf.at/profile/Fokus-...kampf/13992139

    the original, in the German language, was from the ZDF, might be still somewhere around for free.
    this link, from the ORF. shown 2 days ago needs a VPN, as the film - for copyright reasons can only be shown in Austria-...

    two-thirds of it I did not know. Shows there is always something new to learn. Excellently done, no patriotic but also no communist or anti-communist hurrah or condemnation. And what Marx thought should be and what happened in reality was somethign completely different. All four, Mao,lenin,Stalin and the DDR misused his ideas and conceptions. Thy are all fone. Marx though is still here. If not alive obvious, but in the heads of many a proletariaon, communist but also capitalist.

    Of course, dictatorship of proletariat is the program thing in both of "Manifest if Communist Party" and "Das Kapital. Kritik der politischen Ökonomie".

    But Charlie Marksl wanted the revolution to begin from the top to the bottom. First the rich dethrone the even richer. Then the bourgeoisie dethrones the rich. and then the- masses, the workers and the have-nots- begin the revolution. and all will be fine. but it did not work that waz. the -masses - wer just not ready yet.
    Only in places like Russia or China did the Revolution begin with the masses. Where both Lenin or Mao had little or no inkling about the ideal or ideas of Marx. Ironical as it is, but such was life.
