False. This is a misrepresentation of Marx' views based on an anachronistic view. In Marx' time opium was a pain-killer, Marx meant that religion reliefs pain of the capitalist system, he was not anti-religious.

[QUOTE=Valery Staricov;1061075780•Fifth forecast of Marx: prohibition of the bourgeois culture and ideology which, as if, justify the exploitation of man to man.
Results: It is the building of an ideological machine by deception for its own people, it is the establishing of censorship, it is low level and low quality of domestic culture. Talented artists were forced to emigrate, were expelled abroad, have been in prison, were brought to suicide, but mediocre artists edited their works huge circulations, which was difficult to sell. Thus, the disappearance of competition among Soviet artists had led to total
degradation of quality for their artistic works.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=Valery Staricov;1061075780•Sixth forecast of Marx: It is dictatorship of the proletariat with subsequent death of State.
Results: It is the arbitrariness of the authorities and State terror against its own people. It is deliberate initiating of civil fratricidal war. It is prohibition of the opposition parties and the capital punishment of their members. Voting was open from 1918 to 1936. Elections become a farce gradually. Instead death of State it became by tyrannical and then oligarchic. Bodies of State terror have become State security organs, which change your title periodically ‐ VChK, GPU, MGB, and then the KGB. They can act contrary to law. Such functions have carried out “oprichniks” when tsar Ivan Grozny (“terrible”) was. Malyita Skuratov was personal hangman under Ivan Grozny. Start Bolshevik’s terror was one from causes of the civil war. Deputies of Constituent Assembly F. F. Kokoshkin and A. I. Shingarev were killed among the first, and nothing remembers even about such formality, as deputy immunity.[/QUOTE]
Dictatorship of the proletariat is not actually a dictatorship. Russia was only a DOTP in 1917, from then onwards this was abolished.
IF you look at Marx' description of the DOTP we see this was non-existent in the USSR.
Marx said that in a dictatorship of the proletariat, workers would have the right to recall and give mandates to public officials to guarantee a sort of grassroots democracy. Did was never implemented (only in 1917, but the Bolsheviks destroyed it in 191. He said public officials would receive an average wage, which was non-existent in the USSR.
He said money would be abolished, which was not introduced.
[QUOTE=Valery Staricov;1061075780• Seventh forecast of Marx: building a classless society.
Results: Classless society (communism) have left distant utopia, realty results were the destruction of many representatives of nobility, priests, rich peasants, Cossacks, the bourgeoisie and merchants, confiscation of property and State’s robbery under the Lenin’s slogan “It need to rob property which was robed!”. This robbery was accompanied by physical destruction and imprisonment by the representatives of these estates. This policy has resulted to destruction of private entrepreneurship, the disappearance of economic stimuluses to labour, to equality in poverty, economic ruin, because the organizers of a large production were destroyed or expelled from the country. The economic policy of military communism had replaced the market to direct distribution of products and clothing. But before it can distribute, first it need take away these products from peasants under threat of execution, but such an withdrawal has received a just resistance of peasants and it was one from causes of the civil war. This war continued until such time as Lenin replaced by food’s confiscation (“Prodrazvyorstka”) to food’s tax.
“Prodrazvyorstka” is state’s robbing of peasants without any norms and restrictions. Unlike “Prodrazvyorstka” , the size of the food’s tax was known in advance and was less than the size of “Prodrazvyorstka”. Lenin replaced the policy of military communism to policy NEP (New Economic Policy), that is he abolished the prohibition on petty trading, he entered the convertible currency – the Golden Russian chervonets, Lenin has allowed again that
enterprising man can become an employer (“nepman”). Stalin destroy HEP and repressed “nepmans”. As a result of all these cataclysms a new ruling layer (party “nomenclature”) appears.
Conclusion: As long there will be a division of public labour, such long society will be built at the social conflict and social control, until the classless society will remain a unrealizable utopia.
220.127.116.11. The conclusions from the Communist experiment:
Simplifying social structure is impossible. Religion, private property, market, state, laws, money, the separation of powers, democracy, a multi‐party system, the constitution, art competition, scientific discussion, the prison system, the army, law enforcement authorities, social control and social conflict are a great social inventions, which will die never and cannot be abolished without damage for society, and without just resistance of the population to this efforts of utopianists. Self‐ isolation of utopian State will leads to economic collapse inevitably.[/QUOTE]
