It is not communists who make the revolution, it is the working class. Workers believe all sorts of shit - gods, nations, bourgeois ideologies. Are we going to 'not work with the working class'...

Seems to me you want to build a 'benevolent' state-capitalist barracks-state. By the way, most of us here think that there's no such thing as 'state socialism', it's an oxymoron.
