CCLXIX

A vanguard is different from a leadership, even in metaphor (if you can excuse the military metaphor).  It exists only because it’s at the front – if the direction changes, the vanguard changes.  Whoever catches up to the vanguard – no matter how many – becomes the vanguard.  If no one follows the vanguard, it ceases to be one.

For socialism-from-above, leadership and vanguard are the same – either something to be, or to resist, or that they already are.
