It's somewhat curious that the architects of  the s.c project for a new 
American century were very well versed in Lenin -- as if knowing or even 
appreciating the great masters of Marxism didn't give a _direct_ (i.e. 
_necessary_) relation to a Stalinist programme.
Brecht would himself know intimately what it was like being persecuted by a 
party line. Before the failed putsch in Munich his name had been put on a list 
of people scheduled for incarceration. As you may know he famously fled Germany 
in the 1930s, lived in Denmark for a number of years, before taking refuge in 
the US, where he was marshalled before the Committee of Un-American activities 
during the McCarthy-regime. Med vennlig hilsen / Yours sincerely,
