   There was not much choice. You know that he was more or less
imprisoned in his previous exile in Norway, and that no other country
wanted to give him a visa.

    Well, Mexico was and still is a Third World Country.

    Also, there were important sections in Third World Countries --
think of Vietnam, China, or Ceylon (Sri Lanka).

    The first big problem was that Trotsky's expectation that
Stalinism would be destroyed after the war, was not confirmed by the
events, and that in most countries the proletarian revolutionists were
in a small minority.
