The article was signed by an individual, not by any leadership body. It
therefore represents a private opinion, not that of the DSP or Resistance.
The expression of such opinions is called "discussion" - you know, the thing
the DSP and Res supposedly lack?

The article reflects the fact that the Australian left is fragmented into
competing groups. Using it as a pretext for maintaining that division will
only ensure that more like it will be written.
