Nonsense. You reappropriate the party from the reappropriators, and force
the *neolibs* to resign in a huff, write boring, turgid memoirs and form
an Ecocapitalism Party funded by Klaus Tschira's nephew. The Eurogreens
have legislators, an electoral machine, mailing lists, fundraisers, a
whole infrastructure right down to the grassroots.  You engage with that
grassroots, instead of constructing ever more pure cadres. And the Greens
are not the kind of group who just go and expel people because they're
cantankerous or mouth off unpleasant realities.  Ilka would last all of 25
seconds at *any* SPD or PDS conference, the moment she got on the podium
they'd call in NATO airstrikes or something.
