That's IMO a correct criticism, except for the concept of
"stalinist" states, which doesn't differentiate between socialist
or capitalist ones either. Approximately in the late '50:s,
socialism had been overthrown completely in the Soviet Union. During
decades before that, there was a complex situation which I hold to
be best analyzed as a socialism with deformations.
But you're right in also saying to Malignki:
>even Mr. Trotsky hearing your twaddle today would ,to paraphrase
> Marx, say "if this is marxism than I am not a Marxist."
>You could become more than a legend in your own Mind.
