How come then, that it was OK for you to watch out for cops then, but now
you take the cops word for what Maleki did in that same war? Come on
Proyect come clean, you are so envious of Maleki, who did something
serious to stop the war, while you wanked about in the SWP student
brigade, that you cant digest your lunch anymore.  The bile is taken
out on us poor suckers who think there might be some hope for you]

[more envy.  How can anybody take Maleki seriously and not you. Your
life was CHANGED after all, cant we see that! We all deserve to be
shipped off to Marxism-intro to learn some Proyect fundamentals like
how to poster in the rain, how to use police charges to slander a
militant Trotskyist, and how to lunch a revolution from NY city.
  As Hugh continues to point out, why would we want to go to the
 Stalin school of falsification?]>

>[sorry if we all cant be intellectuals and have our lives CHANGED  by
demonstrating against the Vietnam war.  You cant understand how
workers live and how they might CHANGE without first reading Marx and
Engels? This betrays you contempt for the working class,  and your
intellectual arrogance in substituting yourself and your coterie of
lunch-time marxists as the alternative to the working class.  PO got
it right, under your personal self-advertisment is your political
agenda - defence of the progressive petty-bourgeoisie as the agents of

Maleki's activities. You are the judge, jury and executioner in place
of the bourgeois state?  Doesnt that make you an accomplice of the
state? I say executioner, because while you have not
gone that far, you accuse Maleki of murder without proof, and at
the same time cover for Olaechea's open advocacy of killing oponents of
his political tendency in Peru.  If you go that far in Peru, without
having done your "research",  of course you can go that far in the US
where you still havnt done your "research".  You take Olaechea's word
in Peru, and the FBI's word in the US.]
Pretty soon Malecki will be history. I plan to post his Cleveland

bourgeois state.  There is only one thing for principled marxists to
do on this list and that is to condemn you and refuse to have any further
discussion with you until you reject your rotten bloc with the
bourgeois state against Maleki and apologise]
 But in a day or two, we will be on a new list where I will be as sober as

[You only speak your mind about unimportant matters Proyect?
Those important matters no doubt will be how the intellectuals can
save the world from the dreadful working class which seems incapable
of rising up to the challenge of lunching a revolution. I agree such
things are not worth speaking your mind about]>
