The dialectic is the core and defective "oligarchic" component across Western Civilization, and is found in similar formats in other civilizations that can be compared. Knowing this actually creates an ability to view civilization with an eye to converting radical, revolutionary changes into EVOlutions, so that desired benefits do not become reversed by highly-predictable betrayal, such as by the Bolsheviks.
The five-year Russian revolution can be hypothetically re-modeled to show where "things went wrong," and how its desired benefits can be achieved. It was preceded by the capital families of euro-royalty whose consistent anti-Semitism very-likely birthed socialist revolution, and with it, communism --resulting in increased anti-Semitism.
The actual "problems with communism" are accurately described by Jacques Camatte in his "On Organization." His work also provides ideas of how to deal with a universal paradox he describes where political organization necessarily decays into racketeering because of corruption of theoretical elitists, but that both organization and theory are necessary to human survival against exploitation.
Camatte's ideas were not accepted by core communists (of course), but led to Green Anarchy, an a mature environmental movement. What is really needed, however, to build on the past is a Labor extension of Camatte that is not anarchy (or communism) but a genuine celebration of the proletariat worker-hero, and a restoration of the peasant farms from which the proletariat was evicted, in current reading, the "Pale of Jewish settlement" that is (currently) Western Russia.
This is possible because the internal flaws of revolution have been exposed by inquiry into the occupy movement. Especially implicated is Plato and other oligarchic philosophers such as Hegel: "The Republic" and "thesis -> anti-thesis -> synthesis."
Camatte's successful inclusion of a green component suggests a return to nature. It can be empowered with multicultural learnings such as the strength of soy, and humanistic science such as the (aboriginal) knowledge that animals have the same empathy that we (are supposed to) have (as from Darwin).
