: : While I have no quarrel with the content of the above letter [Are you sure?], its condescending tone--with its talk of what "sensible people realize"--is indicative of what's wrong with so many members of the opposition. Furthermore, it has been my experience that this attitude is very common in Red groups like the Sparts.

: Something wrong with the Sparts?

: And speaking of 'what's wrong with so many members of the opposition,' don't you think that YOU are not just a mite condescending?

: : Word to the wise--people don't like to be talked down to Mr. Lenin-head. Keep it up with letters like that one and you and you're party will keep attracting the people you are attracting: Freaks.

: As long as we don't attract YOU, half the work is done.

: Now go hug a tree or whatever it is you liberals do in between your annual protests.

This competition to see who is the leftist of the left, the purist of the pure, etc. ad nauseum, will only marginalize your respective groups. You'd all better learn who shares overall common goals and form some alliances, otherwise you'll continue to be crushed by the united force of global capitalism.
