@mala I have many and complicated Thoughts on this whole thing.
One: anti-capitalists need to understand a LOT more than they do about the massive and obvious failure state of anti-capitalism, the Soviet Union. I mean it's right there and yet so many anticaps keep just ignoring it like it won't happen a second time if we do the same things.
Two: some of the worst fails in the USSR came from drawing too many 'best practices' from the capitalists. Taylorist 'scientific management', for instance.
