Trotsky on nuclear power

Trotsky was writing about nuclear power
back in the 1920s when a considerably
smaller body of information was available
about nuclear power, psychoanalysis and
other matters. I' d like to hope and think
his thinking would have evolved with the
passage of time and increased knowledge.

It's easy to look back from the perspective
of hindsight, which is always 20-20 and all
of us have written things we'd not like to
have presented to us later. But going after
Leon Trotsky for this problems, 85 years
later? This is at once unreasonable and
a-historical I think.

Give the Old Man a break, please...
