Carl Webb: 

Following Trotsky's analysis of the degeneration of the USSR the main
danger to the Vietnamese Revolution is in its own leadership and the
main danger to the North Korean Revolution is in its own leadership
and the main danger to the Chinese Revolution is in its own
leadership.

Fred comments:
(One thing about Carl Webb posts: not much alternative to quoting the
whole thing.)

"Following Trotsky.'s analysis of the degeneration of the USSR" PROVES
nothing about the leaderships of China, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela or
any other country. Trotsky, being a materialist, never suggested that he
was providing a guideline for evaluating future revolutions.  "Following
Trotsky's analysis of the degeneration of the USSR" is simply the
announcement of a preconception derived from the USSR experience that
determines the outcome of your analysis of any other country before it
begins.
