Louis: I hate to break the news to you, Hugh old stick, but Lenin and
Trotsky had solid records of accomplishment in leading thousands and then
millions in the mass movement. Trotsky-ists, on the other hand, are no
good at leading the masses but plenty good at quote-mongering. You should
seriously reconsider reversing your priorities.
