Marxists know that democracy does not abolish class oppression, but only makes the class struggle clearer, broader, more open and sharper; and this is what we want […] The more democratic the system of government is, the clearer it will be to the workers that the root of the evil is not the lack of rights, but capitalism.
—  V.I. Lenin, “The Other Political Issues Raised and Distorted By P. Kievsky”.
