Louis:

I am all for sopping up influences from whatever source. You just have to
translate them into the local idiom. Let's defer discussion on this point
until post #3 which will describe my concept of how am American Socialist
Party should be built. My ideas are strongly influenced by the
Nicaraguan revolution, by the way, and a book which attempted to
generalize from that experience called "Fire in the Americas" by Roger
Burbach and Orlando Nunez.
