In Sweden, is Maoist movement strong?
How about USec, Arbetermakt, Internationell Revolution, 
CPs and their offshots, and so?

I'm very interested in Russian leftists.  I heard that anarchism
is growing faster than Trotskyism.

I'm not interested in a "crazy Maoist".

See you later....

FUJIMOTO, Shigeo (Communist Screamer)
Tokyo, Japan
Reactionary epochs like ours not only disintegrate and weaken the
working class and isolate its vanguard but also lower the general
ideological level of the movement and throw political thinking back to
stages long since passed through.  In these conditions the task of the
vanguard is, above all, not to let itself be carried along by the backward
flow: it must swim against the current.  If an unfavourable relation of
forces prevents it from holding political positions it has won, it must at
least retain its ideological positions, because in them is expressed the
dearly paid experience of the past.  Fools will consider this policy
'sectarian'.  Actually it is the only means of preparing for a new
tremendous surge forward with the coming historical tide. 
(Leon Trotsky, "Stalinism and Bolshevism", 1937)
