But John, before Stalin it was the Wobblies that were demonised. And before
them it was the "anarchists" of the Haymarket riots. And before them the
Radical Republicans of the Reconstruction period. And after Stain and the
fall of Eastern European socialism it is the "war on terrorism". Isn't all
to easy to blame Stalin for our own failure to be more effective in opposing
our own governments? We all know what Pogo said.
