Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Were they discussing Trotsky's bit parts from his youth? Shoulda warned him about ice-axes in Mexico. Trotsky may have been the most fascinating of all the revos that survived into the twenties and beyond - but then again, he left such a mess behind in Russia, despite his intentions. BCNU
Well, you can't really blame Trotsky because everyone else over there went nuts. It was bound to happen. Call it PRS: Post-Revolution Syndrome.I'm not a Communist by any means (though I have moved pretty far Left as I've gotten older; I guess you could call me a borderline Socialist these days), but I'll admit Trotsky did seem like the only rational man left in Russia after Lenin croaked.
