Ehh… To be fair, the “idea” of communism doesn’t include those (And from the little I know, would tend to be against that). The real-life of it, of course, is nothing like the ideal. There are some good ideas mixed in there, but the implementation always has some pretty serious flaws to it (I know, sounds like an understatement…). Personally, I much prefer democratic systems, they tend to have more safeguards against such things, one of the more notable flaws of communism that allows such things to develop.
And I’m not exactly sure about the deal with using a quote from Stalin. Personally, I prefer a different quote, “artillery is the god of war.” So do many modern artillery gunners and other soldiers, even durring the cold war.
