The misleading history of bolshevism

We have many times here pointed to the need to distance a new left from the case of bolshevism: the historical given here is misleading as guide to the future. in many ways the fault lies in the original theories of Marx and the many confused concepts (like dictatorship of the proletariat, and the stages of production theory) that turned the whole opportunity into wrong directions. The failure to define the system envisioned as communism left the whole history to ad hoc, and finally Stallinist, improvisation.
We must study the Russian revolution, but then we must forget it and start from scratch.
