That's not what the debate is about. It is about the refusal of some on
the left to support democratic struggles in countries that Nicholas
Cristof writes op-eds against.
This is really a hoary debate on the left going back to the 30s when
Trotsky was accused of undermining socialism in the USSR by writing
stinging attacks on Stalin that he paid for with his life.
Michael, you've said that 40 years ago you were a Maoist. Did you learn
this kind of Stalinist thinking from when you were young or did you cook
it up on your own more recently?
