: Vanguardists start from a position of mistrust of the people. The people can't be trusted with anything more than "trade union" consciousness. Anyone claiming to trust their least opinions under bourgeois democracy is a "liberal."

The 'vanguard' is nothing more than the BEST ELEMENTS of 'the people.'

If you think a union of the WORST ELEMENTS will succeed, all the power to you (and whatever petty-bourgeois 'socialists' advocating special exceptions to the public ownership of the means of the production you wish to align yourself with).

BTW, I'm glad bourgeois democracy, for you anyway, is 'better than nothing'. Because I call THAT sort of attitude defeatism.
