But Lenin wrote (in State and Revolution) that the withering away of   
the state begins at the very instance when the proletariat ("the armed   
working class") takes power.  The Commune-state is "a state of a  new  
type."  The soviet state, alas, though not "strangled at  birth" by the  
Wilsons and Churchills was subjected to grave injuries  that led to its  
violent death at the hands of the Stalinist  counterrevolution in the  
years 1935-1939.
