Yoshie: It seems to me that brutal liquidation of the left and/or the 
right --
often bloodier than what happened in the Iranian Revolution -- appears
to be more the norm than the exception in the long history of formerly
existing socialism.  You might compare Iran with former Soviet
republics in Central Asia, too:

I can believe that, but would take exception at describing those regimes as 
'formerly existing socialism'. I don't accept there's anything 'socialist' 
at all about societies not remotely controlled by and for workers.
