pgt Wrote (1:06 AM): Obvious question: Why the "Ex-" prefix in the title?
A great question. Radical then, equally or more radical now. The problem is that now they have power. The idea that Stalin could be ex-Stalinized, Lenin ex-Leninized, Hitller, ex-Hitlerized is preposterous. "They" may have modified their tactics, but they sure have not modified their internals nor their strategy nor their ultimate goals.
