Saying doesn't make it so is a truism of law and logic which, in the context of socialism, means that labels, such as "democracy", "people's republic", or "dictatorship of the proletariat" are empty words in the absence of practices which fulfill the meaning of those labels and make them a living reality in the life of the people.
