@GreenandBlack Nechayev is describing a future ideal social system. Even your most Stalin did nothing wrong died in the wool tankie wouldn't say the Soviet system was a utopia; especially because the Soviet system was quite literally forged to repel an imperialist invading force. of course it was nasty and militaristic

@GreenandBlack there's no way to say what Marx would have thought about the actually existing USSR but it's a different context: a transitional state attempting to do some kind of socialism while surrounded by capitalist powers that desperately want it dead.

@melissasage so the only difference between Nechayev's Barracks Communism and Lenin's Barracks Communism is that Lenin planned something else to come afterwards?

Because that seems like a pretty tenuous distinction
