>Charles: The social institutions didn't just weaken themselves, it wasn't a
spontaneous falling apart, They were bludgeoned to death by the imperialists
and state-monopoly capitalists. The culprits are still on the scence, and
the sense of fear of them is , again, well founded.

Really Charles?  Most of these institutions didn't really take that much
bludgeoning.  My experience was that the union bashers and neo-liberals were
(unfortunately) kicking at a pretty rotten door when they decided to put an
end to the form of class relations - and their institutional expressions in
the labour movement - that had existed since the War.


Charles: Are you saying they became rotten on their own in the main and not due to the
influence of the bourgeoisie ?
