   Lou I agree that MIM is about as Marxist as the nation of islam.
I wonder what their class background is, being that their located
mainly in Ann Arbour and Cambridge I have a pretty good idea. I would
like to know how the printers, press operatores, drivers and other
workers have committed crimes against the people? Besides many whom MIM
calls imperialist mouthpieces are reporters and columnist who display a
million times more proletarian consciousness than MIM.

   The thing that bothers me the most about these guys is that they are
dicrediting Maoism. The influence of Maoism amongst the working class
in the united states is about zero. These guys are determined for it to
remain that way. If Maoist are unable or unwilling to work amongst this
strata of the proletariat, then they are deceiving themeselves about
wanting revolution.
