The Rise of Stalinism

In order to understand the conditions which led to the rise of Stalinism, it is necessary first to understand the Marxist theory of the state, and to understand the conditions under which the world's first real workers' state emerged. There are many distortions on this subject, which attempt to "prove" that the Soviet State under Lenin and Trotsky was the same state which Stalin headed a few years later.

Marxism has always waged a struggle against the methods of individual terrorism (hijackings, bombings) as well as against state terrorism (the imperialist bombing of Iraq, Yugoslavia, etc.). Acts of individual terror do little but alienate the mass of the people from the cause you are supposed to be promoting.
