In support of Rakesh's point, we need only look at what happened with Poland's Solidarity. What was once a left socialist labor movement that was almost anarcho-syndicalist became within a few short years a reactionary movement that once into power was quite willing to betray working class interests in a variety of ways including the privatization of enterprises.

In support of my point, the fact that it happened does not explain why it happened, nor how it might have been avoided.

"Sticking to principle" is an admirable moral precept, but it leaves a lot of politics to the imagination.
