In the latest issue of "Against the Current", the same magazine that
defended the imperialist interventions in East Timor, Ellen Wood does not
hesiate to "score points off"  Jim Blaut in her article "Eurocentric
Anti-Eurocentricism". Evidently, the title is a deliberate attempt at
deception. Blaut was a socialist and a revolutionary. He was not a vanilla
Marxist. He involved in the mass movement and struggled for the
independence of colonized nations like Puerto Rico. Like Louis Project, the
owner of Marxism list, I am protesting "Against the Current" for lacking
the courage to bring this topic with Jim Blaut when he was alive. What a
"cowardly" behavior indeed!
