I never understood the political program of the Marxist-Leninists. They seek to end monopoly capitalism by centralizing all productive tools into the hands of a few even throwing independent small farmers into wage slavery serving the political-economic elite (i.e. the State).
If the problem of capitalism to the Leninists is that it is not centralized or monopolized enough then they solve the problem of capitalism by monopolizing all the means of production within the world into the hands of what they call the “Worker State”. However, I believe the problem of capitalism is monopoly itself. Capitalism in my opinion is the artificial monopolization of productive tools into the hands of a few which induces wage slavery the defining feature of capitalism. By ending this monopolization, you end capitalism and the state. Redefine property rights to the Proudhonian standard of labor based ownership sustained by active use. This would end profit, rent, and interest.
Bolsheviks are simply Red Fascists. The Soviet Union was a state capitalist system fused with militaristic nationalism. Among other things, the Soviets invaded Afghanistan and occupied that country for a decade. The Marxist-Leninist state like all states for that matter is just a giant capitalist corporation, an absentee feudal landlord, and an enemy to socialism.
