: SDF: Not all Greens support reformist platforms, RD.

Well, any member of the Green Party (E&W) I presume to back their manifesto, which, on closer inspection, calls for stakeholder restraint on Industry (without addressing ownership), seems to advocate a sort of petite-bourgeois market system ( l the Georgists- including the much vaunted Land Tax), are vaguely sound on unions, but have a dodgy 'Citizens Income' idea, coupoled with a notion of setting up banks that don't charge interest on their lendings (that is so not going to work...).

: SDF: Have you tried to persuade people by more effective means than by telling them they're wrong?

Yeah, we tell them why they're wrong.

: Or tell me this: at the rate you're telling people they're wrong, the people will have converted to World Socialism and the revolution will happen... when?

I've no idea, but not telling people they are wrong, when they so blatantly are, does them no help at all...
