This is not a question of timing but of politics. Thabo Mbeki has been
president of South Africa for a number of years now and running it like a
conventional politician. When this was pointed out on the list, Walter
behaved like we were some kind of Spartacist League lynch mob. This is
getting very tiresome. I wish that Walter would learn to approach this list
in a more rounded fashion. His main purpose here seems to be to defend a
radical version of "my country right or wrong" that the CPUSA perfected in
the 1930s and that the Workers World Party reshaped for its own needs in
the 1950s. If a WWP'er or a CP'er wrote 5 posts a week to the list
defending this line, they would have been removed long ago for not
understanding what the list is about. This is not a Cyberduma. I cut Walter
some slack because he does not belong to a party (but seems some days like
a party of one), but he really should learn to be less one-dimensional.
