Well, I very much apologize to Tariq Ali. I just re-read and found at 
the bottom that the Times had selected this piece without further input 
from its author. But I ardently re-state what I wrote otherwise.

What a sad attempt. At a time like no other when we need to seize every 
opportunity, especially in the msm for lucid explanation of the reasons 
for the failure of the Soviet project, the costs to humanity and the 
alternative vision now prevalent on the left of a truly worker-run, 
democratic socialism, we get this standard, "objective", bourgeois 
shoulder-shrug from its author.
