Maybe you hadn't noticed, but Walter is carrying out a typical party (of
one) intervention here. Nobody else has taken it upon themselves to
systematically disseminate newspaper articles revolving around a particular
ideological theme. Most people view Marxmail as a place to exchange ideas
around any number of questions, not as some kind of cyber-duma to propagate
the Line. We have a subscriber named Lou Paulsen, who is a longtime member
of the WWP but who has only been lurking for the past couple of years at
least. Lou never harped on WWP themes unless his party was under attack.
Most of the time he looked forward to exchanging ideas around a whole host
of questions, including Foucault, the Civil War, etc.
I understand that Walter has attached himself to the Cause of the Cuban
Revolution, which in his mind means defending every diplomatic initiative
found in the Cuban press. However, to be quite candid about this, by doing
this he is far more guilty of a misdemeanor that he accuses others of,
namely commenting on the internal policies of countries thousands of miles
As I understand it, Walter is a citizen of the USA, not Cuba. He never says
a word about Los Angeles. To my knowledge, there are lots of things going
on in his city and in California that practically cry out for a Marxist
analysis. This includes the problem of immigration, pollution, trade union
struggles, etc. Perhaps he doesn't pay attention to them because they are
not covered in the Cuban press. What a shame.
