: Lenin and Trotsky were not only learned Marxist scholars and theorists but in addition were trying to build the world's first workers' state.

Chomsky, Calhoun, Bakunin, etc., etc., etc., have all done so admirably.

But have they ACTUALLY put socialism in PRACTICE? Under the BEST of conditions, even?
