The Interstellar Fleet of Dynamic Revolution

Maybe so, but I think my point is that Engels, in this instance, seems to have thought of Marxist theory as unbending without a care for context.

A position I think modern Marxists, by necessity, have largely abandoned. I suppose there is another faction that says that the Chinese revolution has failed and is now largely a cover organization for what is ostensibly the largest capitalist country in the world BECAUSE the prescribed political evolution never happened.

Additionally, that faction gives the same reasoning for the failure of the USSR.

I also had the thought that this political evolution theory was…tainted…by western/European chauvinism(centrism?)
