: : Popular revolutions have only ever happened in Marxist imaginations.

: There were two revolutions in 1917.

: Both were popular revolutions. The second had leadership while the first not. Only difference.

: Now what about Cuba? Did only 12 men with 6 rifles actually take over the government---or did they receive some popular support?

: Get serious.

SDF: I thought the revolution was supposed to happen only in the "most advanced" countries. Sure, you have the triumph of Sandinismo, etc., what of it? It would seem to mean something in light of the claims of scientific socialism...
