I agree with Lisa: we shouldn't let any individual (or individuals) destroy
what we have  collectively built. We, as individuals, have alternatives
(which she specifies): we should use them (where appropriate).

 Do you remember when you first became a Marxist?
(I became one when I was a sophomore in high school). Do you think it's
fair for us to be lecturing people who are new to Marxism and telling
them, in often derisive ways, how little they know? Let's show some
patience and communicate with them as equals and comrades. This may be
hard at times, but don't you remember with fondness those who treated you
with respect when you were first beginning to learn about Marxism?

>From the hundreds of messages thrown  onto this list the worse once
are those who show a strong "marxist", "socialist", "revolutionary"
fervor. Folks, this is the most anti-marxist and anti-socialist list
one can think of.
 Enjoy your trip. Best regards to all, Joseph Halevi
