Mr. Miles:

Yes, as a Marxist, I have to agree that America is a cespool of
imperialism.  However...I believe that Karl Marx himself would advocate
the rights that America has provided to its peoples.  Indeed, if America
were TRULY a land of liberty, it would be a Socialist/Marxist country
instead of the instrument of bourgeois exploitation that it is.  I agree,
and, now that I think about it, I have to agree with what you said about
the internet.  Let's just be careful to not let the imperialists'
instruments of censorship infect this blessing, which has thus far been
the best thing since Marxism and sliced bread.  Ah yes, and as a student
who double-majors in both World and American History, I want to point out
that I am not a History Dummkopf.  I realise that America and its
government is not all that it says it is....Anyone ever heard of the
Council On Foreign Relations?  There's a good book about it, by an author
whose name I will obtain for the list's benefit, called "In the Shadows
Of  Power"

Fraternally In Marxism,
