that if the entire global working class fell into line with the thinking of
the “vanguard” (often, mirabile visu, the same line supported by the
aforementioned leftists), then things would come out as optimum for
everyone involved, even in the short term. That sort of childish claptrap
is believed by no one, of course*...
