Reflections on a May Day march

“Anarcho” in the UK took his kids to yesterday’s May Day march in London and posts his thoughts this morning. Very much worth reading. Here’s a taste:

“Looking at it, I can only assume that ‘non-political’ people would have viewed it as deeply unappealing, if not insane. There were people carrying pictures of Stalin (in this day and age!) and one banner had Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao! Deeply, deeply, deeply crazy… Lenin I can understand, given that awareness of what actually happened under Lenin is not well known in Leninist circles, but Stalin and Mao? Little wonder the so-called revolutionary left seems to be [in] general decline….”

Would this "Anarcho" happen to be the same hysterical idiot who edits the so-called "Anarchist FAQ" with his editorial retinue of other partyline-pushing "anarcho"-syndicalist drones?
