Trotskyites often attack "Stalinists" for being reformists, not revolutionary, etc despite the numerous "Stalinist" revolutions and armed struggles from Greece, Vietnam, Peru, Columbia and Nepal to same some since WWII. Yet Trotskyites in Ireland have stated that they stand for nothing dramatic or revolutionary....What gives?
"I feel the ULA has very common sense policies. When people think of socialists, they think of communism, which is not the case. There is nothing dramatic or revolutionary about our policies. A lot of countries have functioning social democracies, especially in Scandinavia. They have great health, transport and childcare systems. This is the direction we want to take, a direction this Government failed to follow."
