Though momentarily deafened by your voluptuously sustained SHOUTING
( I’ll never get used to the hysterical pitch of political discourse in the States) what you’re saying contains universal validity . Many people i can think of who started out in university as disciples of Leon Trotsky raged against the machine in a similarly reckless manner to your targets here.
Despising anyone who’d tried to do some good within realistic limits.
Paradoxically many in the States — and here in England- become pillars of the extreme right, as adults ; rightly ashamed of their youthful excesses
but wrongly attributing these to all socialistic thought , in my opinion.
