: I've a feeling that leftists all over the world will come to teh defense of the next revolution, wherever it ahppens. They'sre hanging around, waiting for an opportunity to start teh good fight all over again.

I hope not!! This fellow travelling isnt at all good, the role of the socialist is to be real critical of every order regardless, without denigrating to a nothing more than a bunch of slogans and nonsensical sabotage like the Trots.

There's nothing more socialist that fighting oppression and campioning the oppressed regardless of the author or victim, I mean I think the Cold War was a very necessary war and Socialists where dreadfully lacking because of their trust in dogma, labelling, personalities not politics and in ability to provide a source of resistance.
