Communist Party
Is Communism dead? The French Communist Party only received about 3% of the vote in the 2002 election. The "radical left" (read Trotskyist) Parties (Worker's Struggle/Revolutionary Communist Leage/ Worker's Party) received 10% of the French vote in the first round of the national presidential election.

The American Communist Party is drained of funds.

The Soviet Union is gone.

Castro is isolated.

What happened to the Communist Party? And why are the college "radicals" all Trotskyists? What is so damn attractive about Trotsky?
