[Marxism] And you thought your sect was mad...

Doesn't hold a candle to the history of Japanese "Trotskyist" sects:

"Japan Revolutionary Communist League, National Committee (Middle Core Faction)"


The "main enemy":

" In 1975, the leader of Chūkaku-ha, Nobuyoshi Honda, was attacked and
killed in his sleep at his home in Kawaguchi, Saitama by members of
Kakumaru-ha, and Chūkaku-ha declared war on Kakumaru-ha. Escalating
tit-for-tat killings amongst militant leftist groups continued
throughout the 1980s, and the total number of deaths across the three
main leftist militant groups in Japan is said to approach one

My favorite: "On 19 September 1984, Chūkaku-ha's armed wing, the
People's Revolutionary Army, attacked the Tokyo headquarters of the
Liberal Democratic Party using a flamethrower mounted on a lorry,
causing extensive damage but no casualties. In its statement, the
People's Revolutionary Army said that the attack was part of the
airport struggle."

Who needs right wing yakuza thugs or even police provocateurs when
they were quite capable of doing themselves in all by themselves?
