We could learn from our own experience. BTW no reputable 
historian would agree that  "it was [Trotsky] and Lenin who were the first 
to put Marx's theories into practise."This is illiterate stuff. Trotsky 
himself had no "theory of Permanent Revolution", but a strategy of permanent 
revolution, i.e. the strategic concept of a democratic revolution growing 
over into a socialist revolution, given a specific alignment of political 
and class forces (see Michael Löwy, The Politics of Uneven and Combined 
Development; the strategy of permanent revolution, chapter 1).Jurriaan
