Alexander Rahr, a German expert on Russian affairs, pointed out that throughout the Cold War, Moscow had never used its “most effective instrument of power”—the “energy weapon”. He concluded that the fact that the Kremlin was now using this “weapon” represented a new stage in the development of the international situation.

The Challenge of Revolutionary Democracy in the Life and Thought of Rosa Luxemburg
15 Mar 2006
Rosa Luxemburg's life and intelligence have illuminated the human experience and inspired many people who have reached for a better world.
