Assuming that the revolution doesn't happen everywhere at once, is it not
possible that these workers' militias and neighbourhood committees could
find themselves facing a well-armed external foe, say the US, which
threatens them with nuclear weapons? What would you do then? You do not
think it is reasonable to expect sacrifices icluding the sacrifice of life
to protect the biosphere, so is it reasonable in ANY circumstances to defend
the socialist revolution?
