I think the idea was that through the mutual demise of capitalism and
Stalinism, socialism was supposed to "rise from the ashes" or some such
nonsense. Damfino. But hey--at least they didn't have their own
e-meter. :)

The Posadas tendency is why I always get a chuckle listening to
ortho-Trots denounce "Castro oppression of Trotskyists" in Cuba. I
think the only organized Trot presence in Cuba was the Posadas
tendency, who--and this is another claim to fame--wanted the Cuban
government to invade Guantanamo. I suppose this too was another attempt
to spark nuclear war.

There may be no such thing as a stupid question,
but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots.
