Haines Brown writes, "Stan Goff's remarks were very brief and referred
explicitly to his discouragement with Marxist institutional forms. How did
ideology get in here?"

Stan wrote what is close to a 5,000-word essay on his blog, the essence of
which, unless I completely misunderstand it, is not just to sever the sorts
of ties he had had before with a specific group, but also to present a
sweeping critique/summation of the experience of the organized Marxist left
in this country.

I think people are referring to that as well as his other writings, and not
just the few sentences that were posted (not by him) to this list.

The whole statement that is being discussed can be found here:
