Louis: The quote from Trotsky and all other appeals you make for building
a revolutionary party are simply repetitions of the very first post you
made to the list. I told you at that time that these types of appeals are
like hearing from a Jehovah's Witness carrying the Transitional Program.
The quotes from Marx and Engels on the other hand are fresh and
thought-provoking. It is really sad that you can't tell the difference.
