I think it does prove something because these new regimes are very
similar to the old Stalinst USSR.  Do I need to point out those
similarities?  Well one would be that lack of working class control
which is a vital element for a building socialism.  So like Trotsky
who supported the USSR while critisizing it's leadership and called
for a second revolution I apply the same tactic to our present
situation.
