    Specifically, I am speaking to where Lenin defines dictatorship as "rule unrestricted by laws. It was brought into being for the purpose of concealing the ulcers of capitalism, of embellishing imperialism and lending it moral strength in the struggle against the exploited masses. For a time, the collapse of the old autocratic regime during the revolution really did open up new spaces of freedom where citizens took control over their own economic and political affairs through the soviets and enabled rapid progressive reforms that would take decades elsewhere to unfold. On the contrary, it must be sustained as long as possible. October, for an instant, brings a new kind of power.

    In most cases, I provide my own The dictatorship of the proletariat book to highlight particular features of the text, or at least a modification of the standard English translation found in the Collected Works. Under the dictatorship of the proletariat, democracy is proletarian democracy, the democracy of the exploited majority, based on the restriction of the rights of the exploiting minority and directed against this minority. That is what is decisive in continuing on the socialist road, toward the goal of communism, once power has been seized and consolidated, and the basic socialization of ownership has been established. On the other hand, it is true that, as a key part of the class struggle and the advance toward communism, there is the need to give the fullest possible expression, at every point, to the basic principle that the dictatorship of the proletariat must be qualitatively different from all other states, and the more it is strengthened, the more it should be advancing toward its eventual "withering away," the more the radical difference between it and all previous states should be a material reality. That is why Lenin says: "The Republic of Soviets of Workers', Soldiers', and Peasants' Deputies is not only the form of a higher type of democratic institution Despite the principle of democratic centralism in the Bolshevik Party, internal factions were banned.

    The chapter has two main sections. The dictatorship of the proletariat is a revolutionary power based on the use of force against the bourgeoisie. Lenin especially focused on Engels' phrase of the state " withering away ", denying that it could apply to "bourgeois state" and highlighting that Engels work is mostly "panegyric on violent revolution". In The Communist ManifestoMarx gave the reasoning for establishing absolute authority in the name of the working class: "The first step on the path to the workers' revolution is the elevation of the proletariat to the position of ruling class.
