Leon Trotsky: “Our planet is being turned into a filthy and evil-smelling imperialist barrack.”
Leon Trotsky was a very famous Russian indeed. A key figure in the Bolshevik Revolution, in the foundation of the Red Army, which successfully repelled the foreign invasion of Russia which sought to overthrow it. He even found time to be the godfather of our guest Michael Hudson, Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. The author of ‘Super Imperialism: The Economic Strategy of American Empire’, he joined the show to explain his theories on industrial capitalism, politics and military might.
