In a prior discussion (“How Democracy Becomes Totalitarian”, posted on YouTube Nov. 9th) the surprising lockstep path from the theory of egalitarian democracy to the actual totalitarian state, beginning with the example of the murderous French Revolution, was outlined in detail. But a much greater surprise is that Karl Marx, the father of International Communism, who was savage in his critique of Western “liberal democracy” – arguing it is a betrayal of its own theory – boasted that his Communist system would lead to the real emancipation and self-realization of each and every individual, and was therefore the only “true democracy”.
