Well Louis,

I,m back from little Da Nang and well, except for a broken hand and cast.
But I noticed that your level for IQ,s is determined by who is soft on the
Cuban Revolution. Perhaps you can even suck some people in to believing all
the mumbo jumbo mass solutions of real proletarian leaders like Che.

But for Trotskyists your defense of the masses in motion, in fact your
defense of the castroite leadership or the Sandinistas and in fact the total
isolation of Cuba today and the defeat of the revolutionary situation in
Nicarugua which these leaderships are responsible for! Tells much more about
the IQ and political trajectory of Louis the former SWPer and now moving
fast to the right with the help of the New York Library.

By the way i noticed you were whining about "Bougainville". Well, I am
interested in Bougainville as well as a lot of other places in the world. So
for information about this real struggle with real people dying in a fight
for independence from both Papua Nya Guniua and its Australian Imperialist
backers who own the mines on the island and can not open them because the
islanders with arms in hand have successfully defeated all attempts to
reopen the mines. Despite this real struggle i oppose your attempts to block
their posts to the list.

They are just as useful as the numerous other posts involving real struggles
with real people. So climb out of that dusty old university library and
clean some of the old revisionist cobwebs out of your head. Despite your
intensive defense of the old good times in Nicarugua yesterday and Che who
is dead in Bolivia because of his fundementally incorrect line of replacing
class struggle with gurreilla warfare, by the way this theory is in direct
contradiction to marxism along with the PCP,s pick up the gun rhetoric and
two stage theory which only can lead the working class in Latin America down
a bankrupt road too new defeats.. OK..

Or why not take up some of the burning issues like the Russian question,
mass unemployment, Welfare, or the Vanguard party. No, things like this
threaten the existence of the professional Menshevik Soldarity organisations
which dominated the left the last twenty years. We are facing and entirely
new epoch, after the downfall and death of Stalinism and the right wing leap
by the Social Democracy. And you my friend just go on and on with your anti
party, anti Lenininist, anti Trotskyist whining.

In fact once again the great leaders of the October Epoch and revolutionary
leadership in marching towards the conquest of power comes to the fore. What
has died is the counter revolutionary Stalinist garbage of building
"Socialism" in one country. One again the tactics and programs of Lenin and
Trotsky come to the fore against alll those who tried dragging them through
the mud and miserable failure.

In fact this is a time of bringing forth once again these great policies and
tactics that have been buried by years of Stalinist and Menshevik garbage.
The danger today is not our list if intellectual Mensheviks in the coming
period. In fact more danger is posed by the ultra left positions of NEil and
the anarachists! Because they have no tactics at all in a period of rising
class struggle.

And i do not think that the attempts by our Russian friend of building anti
facists fronts in this period will either be a danger. In fact the workers
quite clearly are beginning to lose illusions not only in the popular fronts
but traditional labor parties.
By the way, thanks for the suggestion about Christmas. However the people on
this list will hardly defend Malecki (the Trotskyist) against inperialism.
In fact their are a number of people on this list who have the Stalinist
ideology of "icepicks" against the left opposition on this list.Where others
are just synical Mensheviks who couldn,t even defend a mother on welfare
because of her Lumpen background.

So the real danger is the "direct action" people who do not understand the
neccessity of building a vanguard party based on revolutionary tactics.

Warm Regards

PS: A question to Nick who defends the Greek Trotskyists.. Are you a
supporter of the United Secretariat? Because the post war turns certainly
had and effect on the deaths of some of the cadre of the FI..
