It is fine that the opinions of Philip Goldstein and/or the views of
Laclau and Mouffe (and for that matter anyone else's position) be up for
disagreement on this list.

But not, I think, in the intemperate manner of Ralph Dumain's message
whose header I exerpt above.

We have managed to discuss precisely these topics (L&M, Marxism and
totalitarianism, Marxism and the legacy of the USSR etc.) in a productive
way before, and I hope we will be able to do so in a productive and
constructive manner in the future.

Take care
