Democratic Communism

Why isn’t this a thing? An advanced communist ideology with the benefits of the respect of human rights, especially freedom of speech?

I should start my own party and write a manifesto, but that sounds like a lot of work.

I think after the Stalinist disaster, Communism needs a new branch to distinguish itself, both from the soviet horror and the rest of the original post-Lenin mess. A new manifesto would have to include the coming revolution in automation, which Marx of course didn’t predict.

Edit: Now that I have studied communism and socialism more, I know this was and is a thing, but it isn’t a thing in the sense that it doesn’t really exist much in the current world.
