Those comrades who assert most flatly, with the greatest insistence and sometimes most brutally, that every difference of opinion, every grouping of opinion, however temporary, is an expression of the interests of classes opposed to the proletariat, do not want to apply this criterion to bureaucratism.
It looks like Leon knew what the Deep State was, where an opinion had better be PC, or else! The Bureaucracy has an opinion, did you know that?
Yeah, every fat, useless dreg that sits behind a bureau desk, has a PC world view. And YOU had better toe their line, BOY!
PS: I ain't sure what Trotsky was yammering about for the most part; but with this quote, I think that he meant, that ya better get in line with Commie thought.
[Or, you would be sent to the Gulag, because that is what always followed any dissent. ]
I saw a guy do this once, and he did a back flip. He was a Green Beret show-off in my last NG unit; he was in fact the 1st Sgt, of my battalion, the 2/19 in Ceredo WV.
I think that we were over Camp Williams, UT: or it mighta been at Fort Puke, LA. I am old now, and I am all messed up, from diabetes, so I gets my details wrong sometimes.
Anyhow, he hobbled when he walked, due to his joints being all used up from packing 100 pound rucksacks. But, he still had some grit in him, and he was no one to under-estimate either.
He was about 5'8", and had more guns that I did; and I had 8 or 9 at that time. Here is what I had re-enforced by my time in SF, pay attention and call everyone sir.
You don't know who they are, so be respectful; because you can be a clod any time that you choose to be, after you learn them; because they might be a clod too.
But, not everyone is that.
These are locales of my old SF battalion.......2nd Battalion 19th SFG (A):::::: Located in West Virginia, Ohio, and Rhode Island
And the 19th Group is scattered from the East Coast, all the way out to California. It picked up battalions, when the Army NG was downsized, in the 1990's-2000's.
PS: The Ranger battalion that was located in Michigan, was cut, and they are no more. My whole Group was nearly cut, but I prayed and another NG Group was skewered instead. And they are history now, because I prayed for the 19th to survive.
