Murderous insurrection as a necessary means of seizing power is an integral doctrine within the Marxist-Communist ideology. Marx and Engels believed that an extensive period of violence, civil conflict, and international conflict was inevitable and essential to ultimate communist victory.

Soviet Communism can be identified by its bloody beginning under Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky. These criminal, homicidal propensities led inevitably to the revision of Marxist communism into Stalin's murderous totalitarian dictatorship.

Unfortunately, many American and European pseudo-intellectuals sympathisized with the Lenin-Trotsky-Stalin Soviet dictatorship, deluding themselves--in the face of incontrovertible evidence to the contrary--that the mythical "Russian Revolution" represented a genuine non-violent victory for the working class.
