Hiya Louis.. well, I just sent you a response to the articles you
sent me from the past which you forewarded to me.  Sorry if I seemed
a bit testy.  I am very concerned that our mere presence on
the Internet, let alone the fact that most of us are a part of
society which benefits from exploitation tends to push many
of us towards reactionary politics.

I must admit I have been frusterated with activists who totaly
reject the Internet altogether, but at the same time I find the
"anti-enviromentalism" of some Marxists to be shocking.  It wasnt for
nothing that the right started saying environmentalists were
"Like watermellons - green on the outside, red on the inside".

That we should throw out the "green" part and only keep the "Red"
part would be a mistake, I believe.
