For the record, Yoshie has not 'gotten religion,' she is still a
hard-nosed marxist. If she is committing any error it is in being a bit
too anxious that socialism should arrive in her own lifetime. This leads
to a certain unwillingness to accept as a given the current overwhelming
strength of u.s. imperialism and the consequent weakness of left
opposition, and that unwillingness leads (within the scope and limits of
e-list conversation) to a certain thrashing about 'searching for an
exit."

Relax, everyone.
