Mauro jr:
The insistence of Scott on the mass organisations in quite childish. The PCI
(Italy) had for decays over decays a mass organisation..., and now we have
the "fascists" at the government, with a working class incapable to answer
the most brutal attacks to wage and employment. 
Comrades, it was and should be an elementary communist principle the one wo
says "the important thing is not the organisation for the organisation, but
the bases on which the organisation is built".
Who, marxist, read the German Ideology knows very well that the dominant
ideology is the ideology of the dominant (ruling) class, outside the
revolutionary periods. That means that if you have a mass organisation
during the **** Clinton Presidency, quiet as it is, you are certainly not on
the historical class ground (which is revolutionary, otherways is not).
This, just for remindinig to the marxists the ABC of marxism.
And this works for the "discussers" about The Soc.Lab Party, as well.
