You gotta give the advocates of "realism" one thing - they picked a good name, maybe the best since Lenin named his minority faction the "Bolsheviks." Who wants to be anti-realism?(I realize, of course, that a critique of realism is that it's unrealistic.)
For those who, like me, had forgotten, this courtesy of about.com:"In 1903 the Russian Social Democratic Party split into two groups; the more radical minority became called Bolsheviks (which actually means 'members of the majority')."
In a better world, Lenin would've ended up on Madison Avenue.
