Did it ever occur to you that, by not giving a few men all that power, you wouldn't have to worry about them being corrupted by it and killing everyone? And it's not just Stalin, what about Mao's struggle sessions? Pol pot? Mugabe? Ceaușescu? Lenin killing the people who actually fought the revolution? Has there ever been an ML strongman that didn't make a mockery of communism?

it's far better than the alternative

But capitalism isn't the only alternative to state socialism.
