Great quote from a Christopher Hitchens’ book review in the Times:

“A professor at the École Normale Supériere is popularly supposed to have said: ‘I agree that it works in practice. But how can we be certain that it will work in theory?’”

Hitchens is one of those rare Marxists that actually supported the Iraqi war, on the grounds that democracies should try and overthrow fascist dictatorships.

Finns should get more familiar with his work. A good a place to start as any is the book review.

I do believe Hitch refers to himself as a trotskyite or is that trostkyist...anyway, haven't read him or anyone else for that call the man a marxist.
