>>LP made a statement that socialist politics should not be introduced into
the anti-imperialist or anti-war movement.<<

Sort of. He said the better groups don't "interject" their politics.
Initially I read it as "inject" - similar idea. I took this to mean
foisting abstractions *onto* the movement.

I think we do need to develop socialist politics *in* (not into) the
movement, but the challenge is how to develop them *out of* the dynamics of
the struggle itself. This, to steal a line from Brecht, is that "simple
thing so hard to achieve".
