A response to Jose P and Tom O’Lincoln on the bombing of the UN compound in Baghdad, the present stage in Iraq, and other matters
My battered, much read, much lent copy of Let History Judge (about Stalin) by the Soviet dissident Roy Medvedev starts with four quotes, two of which are:
“We need complete, truthful information. And the truth should not depend on whom it is to serve.” V.I. Lenin
Self-criticism — ruthless, harsh self-criticism, which gets down to the root of things — that is the life-giving light and air of the proletarian movement.” Rosa Luxemburg.
