Hey, I am *not* a member of DSA though I do get Dissent
(I also get Against the Current, Monthly Review, Science
and Society and New Left Review).  I am a market socialist
and I am very strongly of the opinion that class is primary.
Not being an American, I am constantly surprised at how
much of what passes for the "American left" more or less
ignores class.  But Louis, I do like most of what Ellen
Meiksins Wood has to say about class, and I think for anyone
to suggest that Gerry Cohen is not primarily exercised by class
knows nothing about Gerry Cohen.  (He was once my teacher, BTW.)
