Hello everyone.

I am new here, so bear with me.

Re: The Malecki and Proyect et al wars

It is a shame that 'marxists' have to resort to this kind of behaviour. The

reason I use quotes around the word is because I find it really difficult
to
believe some of you actually are.

I mean, I hate stalinists, but not to the extent of slandering them, or
threatening them with exposure in the interests of the state. or creating a

witchunt, or questioning their past activities where there is sufficient
evidence to show me that they are not lying, or physically attacking them
(unless they attacked me)

I have worked with stalinists in the past , defending job-losses and
supporting
strikes, doing solidarity work, etc. as I recognise that , where I am from,
the
Labour movement was more receptive of them than they were Trotskyists. It
would
be foolish of me to ignore them, after all we all remember the third
period,
dont we?(do we???)
I really dislike stalinist politics, but , I think to myself, who *is* the
real
enemy? Is it them (like Mr Shachtman thought) or is it the bosses and
capitalists?

I also think: when I see one, what shall I do? Shall I spit on them, shall
I
call the police? Shall I march seperatly from them, but strike together?
(although the stalinist would not strike with me)

Get the analogy?

Malecki, although a orthodox trot, does not really deserve the witchunt or
virulent slander he is being subjected to. I mean , whose idea was it that
he list the dates and places when he was arrested? No marxist would go that
low, would they?  At least none that I know of.

And all this stuff about photos. Really, people.
Oh but I forgot Malecki is the class enemy?? silly me!

I think he is more the enemy of 'acadmeic bullshit' to be honest, and that
is why people like Proyect fear him so. In objective class terms he IS
proyects enemy.

I must make it clear that I do not support Malecki's politcs, before people
label me as a 'spart', or whatever.
I am just a lowly *principled* socialist, who beleives this 'war' against
Malecki has been initiated by the right-wing. My evidence is the lowly
tactics employed by so-called marxists. They do a dishonour the marxism as
a theory of practical activity and emancipation, words which they have
difficulty of understanding.

Take your discussion  out on the streets 'comrades', and employ your
witchunting campaign against the fascist filth and the capitalist bosses,
and then we might  sort out the 'good' from the 'bad' of us.

I just hope  that one-day that I might have a story to tell as remarkable
as Maleckis. I would prefer that than a story which said that I helped to
personally destroy a marxist on the internet, despite how flawed I thought
his politics were.


fraternally,

KS
