Why Communism is dangerous

Proletarian coercion, in all its forms, from executions to forced labour, is, paradoxical as it may sound, the method of moulding communist humanity out of the human material of the capitalist period.

Nikolai Bukharin, 1920

Communists often blame the excesses of the Soviet era on Stalin as a nasty individual. But even if they admit to the evil done by Lenin, it is clear that the root of the problem is in the system that denied a basic diginity to all humans regardless of class. The image of God supplies a trans or supra-class basis for the fair treatment of all. When Bukharin said this the revolution was just 3 years old. The rot didn’t take long to settle in.
