Interesting... the DSP has (to my view, correctly) been supporting the
struggle against the SACP's sell-out politics in S Africa... should I gather
from this post that a similar pattern of handing down power to the outright
bourgeoisie is being promoted by the DSP comrades? If the FSLN is a model
for anything, it would seem to be a model for the continuing need to hold up
arms and stay vigilant. The ANC has become a different matter entirely.
