Louis: Ken, you don't get it. No matter how uncivilly people on this list
have treated each other in the past, and I have been the worst offender,
nobody regarded anybody else as the class enemy or as a fascist. It was
understood that we were all part of the left. Being called an asshole is
different from being called a fascist. I think you are an asshole, but I
also think you are a socialist.
