Louis: It as nothing to do with being "nice". It has to do with their
deeds, their activity, their performance in working-class and popular
struggles.

Someone like yourself who has never challenged Swedish capitalism through
action wouldn't get through the front door. Talk is cheap. A revolutionary
party made up of kibbitzers like yourself couldn't change a light-bulb,
let alone society.

I am still waiting for you to tell the list what you have *done* over the
past twenty years to confront the Swedish capitalist class. It is odd that
a major-league Trotskyist like yourself never speaks about victories
you've won in the class-struggle.

If you think using the words "Menshevik" and "Trotskyist" 117 times a day
in e-mail on the Internet is the way to change society, you'd better wake
up.
