This is really crass, scoring points over somebody's advanced years.
Somewhere along the line Bob Gould might figure out that the key to
building a movement is to advance your own vision of change and not
obsessively go on and on about the DSP's flaws. You remind me of how
obsessed I was with the SWP 15 years ago or so, but you were never even a
member of the DSP.
If I were you, I'd just ignore them. When the Cochranites left the SWP,
they never wrote about the SWP one single time in their new magazine.
That's a model worth emulating.
