"The truest thing ever said about democratic centralism was The closer you
are to the Centre (leadership) the more democratic it is."

Though I find this too general a denunciation, this 'variant' of democratic
centralism certainly exists in some Trotskyist parties...I will never
forget the time when the head of the American NC of the CMI
[] lectured me:

"We practice democratic centralism; I am the center."
