Perhaps we should have Bad Lads Commisar Class ? Turn the 30 odd lads with criminal pasts into commisars who shoot their own soldiers who dared to retreat in World War 2 Russia. Instead of learning how to smoke a pipe, we can teach the lads to raise morale by begging foreign powers for military hardware ( again Russia 1941-45)
Come your beloved "revolution" you will need people who will show leadership and initiative when push comes to shove. Those that can inspire and take decisions. So perhaps we should have the solidly middle class ex public school failiures who make up the vast majority of the membership of left wing parties going through some sort of "lad's army" style programme.
