    Carlos:

    Scotty, Scotty ....  Trotsky was never a Menshevik, but an opponent
    of menshevism.  He was the head of the Siberian delegation to the
    famous 1903 Congress.  Trotsky wrote in his official report:

            "Mensheviks are a danger to the revolution, Bolsheviks
            will become a problem only after they take power"

    Centrist, maybe.  Menshevik, nope.  Again, Scotty, read some
    Trotsky and learn a thing or two.
