    and of course makes sense, since Bill Kristol's dad was an actual Trotskyite.

    •  Saw an interesting book (none)
      review last night on C-Span3 recorded at Politics and Prose where the writer was dicussing how the original Trotskyists ethier became Social Democrats or Anti Communist NeoCons. I have come to believe that there is a certain breed of human that believes in authoritarian rule at all cost, and that breed of human will coopt any idea that is weak enough to allow a single leader to rule with an iron fist. No matter what you call it, Socialism, Democracy, Capitalism, Communism, it has been lead to tragic ends by totalitarianism at one point or another by a charismatic leader selling us nothing but lies and deception. Pinochet and Kissinger anyone?
