When it comes to Cuba, the position of the SWP-UK and the ISO
is simply, clearly, unmistakabley and obviously anti-Communist.
That is why they cannot see ANYTHING positive in anything which
is done by the leadership of the Cuban Revolution.

I am not sure why the ISO'ers subbed to Marxmail have not responded to
this garbage, but I must step in in their absence. To describe them as
"fanatical anti-Communists" is an unadulterated slander. Anti-Communism
means one and only one thing in the common parlance of the left. It is
the politics of a Todd Gitlin or a Paul Berman. State capitalism or the
theory of bureaucratic collectivism associated with Max Shachtman is
*not* anti-Communism. They believed that communism was necessary in the
so-called communist world, but one "from below". True anti-Communists
believed that the entire revolutionary project conceived by Karl Marx
led to disaster.
