Who cares what Louis P will not tolerate any longer?

Louis P assured us he was human and then wrote:

Takes one to know one. Anyhow, the carcass is what's left of Stalinist
ideology, and it's unfit for human consumption. So what we're doing is
tying it down and driving a stake through its heart. Louis's just peeved
cos he's about to crack into a thousand pieces with it.

Piggy-in-the-middle playing Judgement Day with himself as God.

I'm sure that neither list gives a damn if Louis gives them a chance or
not. That's not what they're for.

There's no cancer here, only the forceful clash of diametrically opposed
traditions of socialist thought and action.

M1 is only dead in Louis's mind. In reality it's alive and kicking and
doing a better job than might be expected.

And with a bit more political relevance and a lot fewer putdowns from the
likes of Louis P, even more people would venture to make contributions and
stir the pot.
