This is not a good way to introduce yourself. Although there are no
hard-and-fast rules here about using your name--or any name--reddynowru is
not usually what we're looking for. If you have a job or something that
makes you vulnerable to google searches on your real name and Marxism, then
use something like "Bert Riley" or "Maria Bustelo" or whatever. Or just use
your first name and your last initial.
Moving on to the substance of your post, it is not very useful to send
things here that fall into the category of preaching to the choir. It
should be obvious that people on this mailing list that capitalism and
imperialism are evil.
We aspire to a more scholarly standard here. We encourage reports on books
and journal articles or critical examinations of items that appear in the
bourgeois press. Most of the day-to-day posters here have had decades of
experience in the revolutionary movement and we don't appreciate messages
that repeat the abc's.
