	Like Paul Cockshott, I disagree with Chris' view of the USSR but
not for historical reasons. I don't see that Marx claimed, as Chris says,
that in the communist era the ruling elites will master the unintended
consequences of their actions. I think that all that Marx says is that
communism means the end of human prehistory in which class conflict makes
all historical consequences or results something that no one intends or
plans for.
