I think we should wind down the state capitalist thread. As I said 
yesterday, this never would have come up unless Einde hadn't unwisely 
decided to act as a messenger for Kevin Murphy. I would also say that 
despite my deep differences with both the ISO and the SWP over Cuba, I feel 
that the work they are doing in Great Britain against the war and the 
support they gave the Nader-Camejo campaign in the USA is *exemplary*. I 
would add that at least one ISO leader who I have had private exchanges 
with occasionally is very interested in an alternative analysis of Cuba. 
Furthermore, if you go to http://www.leninology.blogspot.com/, the blog of 
British SWP'er Richard Seymour, you'll note that he has no problem applying 
the label socialist to Hugo Chavez. Finally, I and many other people on the 
left regard CLR James as one of the greatest Marxist thinkers of the past 
50 years and was a state capitalist himself.
