Soviet Union on Democracy - Dictionary of Arguments

Krastev I 91
Democracy/Soviet Union/Krastev: (...)Marx's final gift to the Soviet elites was persuading them not only that capitalism was designed for the predatory self-enrichment of a few but also that Western democracy was a shrewdly constructed system for maintaining class domination. Democracy, viewed in this cynical light, had nothing to do with the accountability of politicians to citizens. On the contrary, the democratic illusion of accountability helped mask and preserve the autonomy of a political ruling class that was never, as a whole, chosen in a fairly contested multi-candidate
election. >Democracy/Policy of Russia.
