: The 'vanguard' is nothing more than the BEST ELEMENTS of 'the people.'

SDF: Spoken like a true "scientist," SUBJECTIVELY...

: If you think a union of the WORST ELEMENTS will succeed, all the power to you (and whatever petty-bourgeois 'socialists' advocating special exceptions to the public ownership of the means of the production you wish to align yourself with).

SDF: Did I say I ALIGNED myself with NJ? Frankly, I think that an alliance with him and his group of LEFT social-democrats FOR THE TIME BEING would be a good idea, & that dismissing him would be bad strategy TODAY. But no, I don't ALIGN myself with NJ. BTW, did you ever bother to find out WHY he believes WHAT he believes, or is suspicion more fun?

: BTW, I'm glad bourgeois democracy, for you anyway, is 'better than nothing'. Because I call THAT sort of attitude defeatism.

SDF: Kovel is running to EDUCATE the public -- I don't see anything wrong with that, just as I don't see anything wrong with David McNally's advocacy of education.

But you don't give a shit. Tell your club we hate your guts.
