Radical socialists equal Stalinists or Maoists, while Radical Conservatives equal fascists.
Is Layton a Stalinist? No.
But there is a segment of the Canadian population that are Stalinists or what I call Neo-Stalinists or just Stalinists.
Stalin believed a proletariat was the best. He hated those not associated with the proletariat.
Some Socialist Canadian Stalinists, support traditional working class, and they also hate those not associated with the working class.
Stalinists hated a working or monied group of people, and blaming them for all of its problems and watches that group and if it slips up gets after that socioeconomic class or whatever you want to call it.
That would be the Entrepreneurs.
In Canada, the Socialist Stalinists are against corporations or free enterprise. Blames it for everything. And watches it more closely than most.
Now Stalinists tried to get everyone to support them even though they had their own clear group. Canada's Stalinists haven't yet.
Now don't think this is an attack on the NDP party or any member in this forum, it is just discussing about radical socialists or left-wing people in Canada that would classify as Stalinists.
