What do you call "petty squabbling"? The discussions on Market
Socialism vs. state=centered economy?, the thread disputing claims
from the rump bunch of murderers of Leftists, Snining Path? The
discussions now beginning about LPA? The exchange about
subjectivity or Spinoza? What exactly are you talking about?

Stalinists United Counter-revolutionary -reformist front of
Godenas-Quispe-Scott Marshall-CKates and Matt "Dillon"? the
omnes of the kind of "Chris London" who in their effort to
stand in the middle always he hit twice? Or a number of
Trotskyists, anarchists, Troskyists-Castroites and son on
who disagree on many things but stand together in a couple

meetings, how many were from other tendencies and how many from

Sure, Richard, but isn't Stalinism and Socialdemocracy "agents of
the world capitalism inside the working class"? Isn't fighting the
Stalinists (like Shining Path, CPUSA and others) part of that
struggle against reformism and, therefore, against the agents of
capitalism inside the working class?
