I was sad to hear of Mandel's death to.
In an intro to one of his books, I think
the one on the causes of the 2nd World War,
he wrote "Only the truth is revolutionary"
which I thought was pretty sound. I always
remember it when I watch the petty manouvering
that passes for politics in the labour
and trade union movement here (and it comes
from all quarters, 'Lenninist', 'Trot',
'Stalinist', 'Social democrat' etc etc).
Like people thinking they know something
worth knowing when they know how stitch up
a meeting or tell a good lie. Not that
its all like that...it just seems that
way sometimes.
