I don't buy this jump from the futility of suppressing national struggles
to the conclusion that they should be supported.
It is just as futile to suppress religion, but I am not going to support

I am not advocating that national struggles be supported. I am
just repeating the Leninist line that the oppression of
national rights must be opposed. I do not support religion
but I am opposed to the persecution of one religion by
another. Leninism does not advocate nationalism, but it
opposes the suppression of groups who believe themselves
to be nations.
