“Glory to the Communist Party of the Soviet Union” was a common slogan there back in the day.

Whether the slogan is correct is entirely a matter of the truth or falsity of the socialist ideology.

If socialism is really a superior economic stage relative to capitalism, and the Communist Party, led by Marx, Lenin, and Stalin, through magnificent effort brought it about, then glory is indeed due to it.

If, however, socialism is not progress but a crazy retrogression into

1) a global slave economy,
2) a vast totalitarian concentration camp,
3) a “world of soulless unthinking automatons,” as Mises referred to an evenly rotating economy (which is the only workable form of socialism),

then, no, it’s not glory that these guys deserve but everlasting shame.
