The next step forward

V.I. Lenin

V.I. Lenin

“Socialism is merely the next step forward from state capitalist monopoly…socialism is merely state capitalist monopoly which is made to serve the interests of the whole people and has to that extent ceased to be capitalist monopoly.”

– V.I. Lenin, 1918, explaining that a state capitalist monopoly controlled by a totalitarian dictatorship was the only logical solution to the inequalities and irrationalities of the capitalist system.
