They have pretty much disappeared themselves. I don't think they are
obstacles to a broad coalescing of revolutionary forces. The main obstacle
is the low level of class struggle in the USA and other advanced industrial
countries. Once there is a new rise in the class struggle, it will be much
easier to bring Marxists together because the logic of the events will make
that need clear. Right now we are in a preparatory period and it is
essential to clarify our thinking around key questions such as the kind of
party we need, how to define the divisions between us and reformist forces,
what basis for electoral activity, etc.
