: Here we go with evidence [?!] of the contradictions inherent in Bolshevism:

:[Crick] "The great Leninist innovation, hardly present in Marx, was the concept and reality of party rather than movement [blah blah blah]...

This lazy quote-snipping from a guy who dismisses the ENTIRE working class as a revolutionary vehicle, repudiates political parties becuase 'you make the revolution yourself' (ONE person?), rejected the U.S.S.R. because they didn't have such neat-o commodities as Playstations and MTV, thinks Plato (Mr. Dictator himself) was an OK guy, and---finally---believes socialism can be achived WITHOUT class conflict!

What a puzzling philosophy!

: [Meanwhile, Lark's latest liberal surrogate debator drones on...and on...] The party became convinced that it was the embodiment of the working class, indeed of an international working class, just as clearly as the Jacobin Club had [yadda yadda yadda]...[and more conflations of Leninism and Stalinism only someone who NEVER read the PRIMARY material might believe...]

What do YOU believe in, Lark?

What's YOUR postive program?

Or shall we just fall back on 'freedom and democracy' for everybody (just like Gerorge W. Bush does)?
