It is hardly accidental that when Vladimir Tismaneanu recycles his essays about Silviu Brucan that he steadfastly avoids addressing the following.  Why?  Because reality is a lot more messy than partisan diatribes.  I encourage readers instead to actually check it out and see what Tismaneanu does not address:
