Didn't we make it clear that it isn't socialist either? And that Socialism isn't the same thing?

They didn't try to establish communism, they tried Stalinism, which is not even close to Communism. Your evidence is also extremely anecdotal. Because one person tried it, and failed, it's therefore impossible? Tell that to all the people before the Wright Brothers.

The nation probably wanted actual communism. Lenin might have, but he died far too early for us to ever know. After Lenin, power-hungry paranoid lunatics like Stalin took over and it became Stalinist until it was dismantled in the 80's.

They may have wanted Communism, but that's not what Stalin gave them. Lenin was closer to Communism, and less crazy, but his ideals still weren't Communism.

Because Stalin had the support the military and the people weren't organized enough or powerful enough to start another revolution. They had just come out of a revolution, they didn't want to start another one and cause more deaths.

I'll repeat:
- Those who had power (military, politicians) were benefiting from Stalin's rule. So, no weapons on the population's side, lots of weapons on Stalin's side.
- Furthermore, fear-mongering made it frightening to even think about opposing Stalin's rule.
- Finally, the secret police killed a lot of people who did oppose Stalin.
