The State under State Socialism and Post-Socialism
In a socialist state like that of the Soviet Union, the state — speaking economically — controls all the means of production. While socially speaking, in socialism, the state is the most powerful figure that can reshape a society. In contrast to a capitalist state, the state is the weaker variable and it lets the state dynamically change itself. After the abolition of socialism in countries formerly espousing it, a lot of attributable negative events happened after its dissolution, poverty incidence grew more pervasive, the high-culture espoused by socialism disappeared together with it. However, after the socialism disappears, all the rights guaranteed under a true democratic society are granted to the people like the right to speech, free press, organization and a lot more.
