About Stalin, Mao, Fanon, Che, Sankara, Bose:

"Instead of finding their orientation in the actual social conditions and
their possibilities, the new leftists base their concerns mainly on a set
of ideologies that have no relevance to the requirements of social change
in capitalist nations. They find their inspiration not in the developmental
processes of their own society but in the heroes of popular revolution in
faraway countries, thereby revealing that their enthusiasm is not as yet a
real concern for decisive social change."

>From the introduction to Paul Mattick's Anti-Bolshevik Communism (Armonk:
Sharpe, 1977)
