what do you hate about socialism that needs to have 'democratic' before it?
I'm also a democratic socialist, but I don't know why OP is mentioning MLs. Marxism-Leninism is democracy.
>>146527>Marxism-Leninism is democracy.
yeah, for the leadership of the Party. no, excuse me, "the most advanced section of the proletariat". Marxism-Leninism is pure idealism.
Your homework is to define democracy, with extra credit for some thoughts on why it is desirable.
The purpose of the second exercise isn't to imply that it isn't' desirable, but because for many definitions of "democracy" one finds that that they fail to achieve those desirable outcomes. For example, we may say democracy is necessary to make policymaking representative, but if we say "Democracy, like the system in the United States" then we quickly find that our definition of democracy fails to align with why we want democracy since policymaking in the US is profoundly un''representative.
