That is (and has been) done by countless capitalist dictators. The rest of the capitalists love these guys.

So, why do they hate Stalin and everything he stands for? ;)

because free market capitalists aren't fond of state capitalism. it shifts all of the power and wealth to a different ruling class.

Because it allows them to attack communism and frame it as a failure by pretending stalin (and lenin and mao and pol pot) have anything to do with communism.

Are you saying they hate him because he served their purpose? That would make no sense. They should promote him, instead!

Or do you mean they pretend to hate him? That doesn't seem to be the case. It seems to me that the capitalists have a deep hate, and an ever deeper fear for the guy.

As for the "failure" you're talking about. Ask the nazis. They felt that "failure of communism" on their necks, pretty well.
