Thanks to Benjamin Solah for renting a corner of his blog to me for a week. Do go over and see what he's about. He's got a revolving photo header, like mine, so do refresh repeatedly while you're there.
He's a horror writer from Sydney, Australia, who lands politically as a Marxist revolutionary who would have much preferred Trotsky to Stalin. I'm of the view that even Trotsky's leadership would have eventually given rise to a Stalin-like figure in the Soviet Union anyway, as ruthless people always are attracted to positions of power over their fellow humans.
