Stop fighting. Start building.
Here’s a spicy one 🌶️
As a guy that doesn’t like Stalin or Trotsky, it’s always disappointing to see how much time comrades waste fighting over two dead guys. If comrades spent the same time and energy building the revolution as they do rebuilding cults of personality, we might actually have Socialism.
Someone has to say it, and I’m proud I’m not alone.
It’s less that we “don’t like Stalin or Trotsky” - it’s more that we don’t like you, the person perpetuating the fight. You are the problem. You are the division in the ranks.
I continue to get DMs from people who feel alienated from socialism because of this debate. Folks in 2023 aren’t interested in the bickering over corpses; we’re starving, we’re losing our jobs, and we’re being killed.
Time spent arguing over a dead guy is not “doing the work.” - Instead, build unity among your comrades, or admit you’re a contrarian that only wants to argue. LARP somewhere else. It is sad to see that theory is never involved; it always reduces to a cult of personality.
Currently, I’m reading Louise Bryant's “Mirrors of Moscow,” and she reported that neither Stalin nor Trotsky were in consideration for the leader of the USSR. As it turns out, there were other notable folks that she described as “just like Lenin” that should have taken the helm. Unfortunately, 4/5 of these people were purged in the 1930s. The other one died of natural causes. We need to have these conversations based around fact, not dogmatism.
Ok, here we go. How many spicy folks will be in the comments?
