Do you?

Of course I don't. No thinking worker would hope for getting nuclear bombs
thrown at her. I agree 100% with Richard, who wrote:

One could take your conclusion as evidence of the bankrupcy of the
"degenerated workers' state" theory, but that would be false. Very few
would but the most lunatic Spartacists could draw a conclusion like that,
even before the collapse of stalinism. You seem to do it almost 6 years after!

Rather it is an example of theory not being a guide to action, but a veil
hindering the real world to enter your eyes.

I really thought it was a slip of keyboard-itis, so that it would be
obvious, what I meant. But sometimes even the obvious has to be spelt out ...
