Ah: The Old “They Never Tried It!” Thing

A reader spent some time at the Marxists for Obama site:

From the link you provided:

The members of this group are not Leninists, Stalinists, etc. and do not support or condone the actions of North Korea, China, Cuba or any other self-procalimed “Marxist States.” They do not in anyway represent the Marxist philosophy nor do they represent Socialism/ Communsim.

Huh? They don’t?

Me: I particularly like the phrasing “in anyway” (anyway should be two words, by the way). So, in no way whatsoever are these states representative of either socialism or communism. I guess that means socialism and communism still haven’t had their fair shot. Hope springs eternal!
