Impressed by Trotsky

I AM very impressed with your presentation of Trotsky in ‘Trotsky’s Relevance Today’ (Socialism Today, No.49) I had no idea that a Marxist-Leninist had the slightest idea what was coming just down the pike in both the USSR and globally.

I wouldn’t say I’m particularly left-wing. I look forward to a long entrepreneurial career that I doubt will do that much to change the world other than to build some really neat ‘new urbanist’ developments in North America occasionally, developments that while a little more ‘sustainable’ and picturesque and cozy, probably won’t do much to further working people toward self-governing, self-organising independence.

But I’ll be seeing more of Trotsky... to see where I fit in to this whole equation.

Alan Avans,
