If you still think Ivan Illich didn't die for your sins, there are many other likely candidates in that dustbin of political histrionics for your consideration. Pause briefly, for instance, to regard Alexandra Sokolovskaya's and Natalia Sedova's main squeeze, Lev Davidovich Bronstein, who received a sharp lesson in political treachery on an August day in Mexico, in 1940.

Trotsky Got the Point: Do We?


Objectivistic revisionism stands moot,

As recidivist socialismus rallies to establish

That Leon, that dear porcine Snowball of Orwellian angst,

Was murderated by a blow to his frontal lobe

Delivered from behind with penetrating



Three score years have passed since

Leon took the brunt of Stalinís sharp latent criticism

Not to heart, but to brain. And now the aesthetes argue

Over whether the instrument of deliverance was an ice pick

Or that instrument of mountaineering known as a climbing



It is too late to axe Leon himself, poor intellectual

Martyr that he was, for he has gone to ground forever now,

Conjecture reigning supreme, with only Madame Salas

Able to clarify the burning question of what

Exactly was used in Leonís premature prefrontal



Ramon Mercader knows, but he is gone,

Somewhat after picking his chosen anti-Menschevik target:

Lev Bronstein. Those sneaky Heebies, forever lurking in

Evíry woodpile! Even a pseudonym was not enough forethought

To save our mensch Lev the terminal Jeebies, on that fatal



Lev got the point, but does anyone today?

Ana Alicia Salas has recently ignited a new party schism

By declaring her intent to auction off that infamous

Mucronated cudgel to the highest bourgeois bidder

For serious rasbuckniks. Sic transit gloria

I wonder how it becomes so important to know the exact way a person died? Might one assume that a person's merit would come from the way that they lived and what they brought to this place. Once physical life ends, it would seem logical the life of the deceased should be of interest moreso than the details of their demise. This is a thought provoking offering, thank you. You have an interesting Bio..gotta love the Swift Birds; excellent photo choice.
Take care,
