I've read Aporias, and Spectres of Marx, and don't recall this exact question coming up, though I understand that some left leaning philosophers are working in a deconstructive tradition.

Has anyone analyzed the possibility or impossibility of communism as an aporia?

For the purposes of asking the question I assumed that communism is a telos, or final cause, that inevitably invades the worker's consciousness, but need not arrive. So at what point can we say that it cannot, that the working class has been defeated?

Is there an analogy between that representation of socialist revolution and 'death', which is what Aporias book seemed to be about.
