Scott gives us some good news about the state of working-class
consciousness. I hope we'll more about this from others.

He also refers to the excellent reception that Gus "Neandert"
Hall got. "Anti-communism is very much in decline as workers
respond to the crisis." It's also in decline now that there's no
longer a USSR.

I hope that people aren't accepting Hall's ideology along with
his person. I hope that anti-communism's decline goes beyond
anti-CP prejudice and also ends the bias against democratic
versions of communism and that anti-CP prejudice turns into an
informed critique of the CP and similar organizations.

for socialism from below,
