IMHO, this is the only sensible answer today. And I am proudly a
member of that broad family of Marxists who have the greatest respect
for Lev Davidovitch. As I have said many times, if life had had me in
Petrograd by the times of the Revolution, I would have most certainly
been a Mezhrayontsik, and I would have applauded the decission to
join the Bolshevik Party.

Now, however, those who call themselves "FI" have little to do with
that group and with that historic decission (which was a great
decission both for Lenin and Trotsky, indeed!).
