Steve's response is far too lengthy and far too myopic for me to respond
to, but I do want to make a point about the above. In the latter days of
Sandinista power, there was *no difference* between their economic
policies and those of Aristide. That point was made by the Militant
frequently as it began to denounce the FSLN as a bunch of traitors to
socialism. In my opinion, the SWP's failure to understand the tragedy of
the Sandinista revolution in its dialectical complexity was a seed that
has blossomed into a truly massive sectarian tree.
