One British comrade told me during Easter that one result of BSE is that
now a lot of people *can* afford to eat beef. Capitalism is wonderful - isn't
it? Falling demand means that the prices have been lowered so that some
of the havenot's can now eat beef.
What if science can show us that money causes cancer, AIDS or whatever
- do you think the rich would give it up as well? ( I don't :-) )

Robert, I asked you about this guide to action once before. Your reply was
(out of my head) that we should use it to show how capitalism is bankrupt.
That's what some of us are trying to all the time.
Such a document would be *the paper* of a socialist organization - where
else would you write it?

Exactly - but doen't that mean that we can boil it all down to how to actually
*build* such a leadership?
