And this is from a communist - I couldn't be more scathing in my comments myself.
Tomorrow's QotD comes from THAT link!
Yep - I have studied (and despised) Communism all my life and some of the things he says in that article even surprised me.
I think I'll put the book on the reading list as a "must read" - if only to explore some of the concepts he raises (such as the relative judgment of Left regimes, the absolute judgment of any non left ones).
Just for the record (and any British readers) the "Ralph" the letter is addressed to is Ralph Milliband whose son, David is in the ZaNu Labour party and currently jockeying for prime minister against Gordon Brown.
He fits the "professional revolutionary", bit, has taken over, hollowed out and controls a moribund political party (the labour party) and is effectively destroying and fragmenting society, demoralising the Armed forces and Police and creating a definite desire for change in the population. All he needs do now is "enlist the masses" (A fair and Just society" anyone" and all five of Lenins tenets are fulfilled.... Ooops! That is already here.
Only tomorrow's quote of the day, Kevin? There's enough material there for a month of quotes and a year of essays. Reading it is like taking a drink from a fire hose.
Yes it is, but one leaped right out at me.
Well, several leaped out at me. I won't try to guess, given that you get pissed if I beat you to the punch.
So, don't keep us guessing too long, right?
Scheduled to publish about 5:40AM tomorrow morning.
Yup, that was #1. Who could miss it?
