Whether we call such a person a "worker" or a "proletarian", we are talking about someone who sells their labour-power in the form of a commodity to a capitalist. So if a dictatorship of the proletariat, or "workers power", is still characterized by capitalists exploiting proletarians, then in what respects does it differ from capitalism?
I would guess probably by the "political power" of the proletariat, but what good is that if capitalists are still able to maintain their economic power?
