Karl Marx hated the USSR and what it did under the claim of his ideas.
Don’t believe me? Look it up.

Comment to The Invention of Ideology
[I’m quite suspicious of people who claim they can “channel the spirit” of someone. Defending the claim that it doesn’t happen is trivially easy. Hence I think the only look up required is that Marx died in 1883 and no government could claim the title of USSR until sometime after the revolution in 1917.
But Marxist defenders don’t really need facts. They just have to “understand” the benefits of communism even if they can’t understand the simplest and best tested of economics theories.—Joe]

And after nine years of this blogging thing I guess I’m getting a bit winded – or my wind is running out.
