I disagree. Your example of the German Communists merely illustrates the fact 
that just because man can determine his own history, it doesn't mean that he 
will, or that the outcome will be the one he imagined when he set out. Simply 
put, the German Communists made a monstrous mistake, taking their direction, 
as they did, from Stalin's Comintern not to join with the Social Democrats in 
an alliance against the Nazis.

The Russian, Chinese, and Cuban revolutions were able to succeed because 
conditions for the majority of the people in each country were so bad. Every 
national liberation struggle - in Africa, South and Central America, Southeast 
Asia, in Ireland - found its origin in repression and poverty.

Take away a man's need for bread and you take away his need for revolution.
