MIM replies: I would hate to have to prove my own lack of self-delusion,
and since you just claimed that you "love" to look into these
things, I invite you to do so. Why not try available published works
before and after Fujimori dictatorship. Does Solidarity support
IU before and after Fujimori etc.?

As for my "dreams," it matters not to me if the whole Euro-Amerikan
"Left" persisted in its support for the IU/Fujimori. That would only
clarify the muddiness and make our thesis on the labor aristocracy
all the more relevant.

So I pledge to be "entertained" whatever answer you come up
with in your research and I promise not to let my dreams interfere.
Either way I will dream a) The Amerikan Left persists in its
craven support for IU b) Some of it saw the light and actually
had the ingerity to either shut up or criticize what it formerly
