DG:     Raya's book "Marxism and Freedom" (published in the 1950s) which I
read in the 1960s helped to free me from the anti-communism which equated
Marx and Stalin.  It was a nice title to find on a library shelf.
        On the other hand, years later as a socialist activist I struggled
to understand and explain News and Letters' strange politics.  For an
initial descriptive phrase I vacillated between "reformist sectarianism"
and "philosophical sectarianism."
