>I agree. The problematical word isn't "hard." It's "truths."
I've known Christopher Phelps for some time now, mostly through
email. He is well-meaning but I am afraid that a large part of his
motivation in publicizing Bettina's charges has to do with
Stalinophobia. After I took him to task once for signing one of
Joanne Landy's idiotic petitions against Cuba, he wrote that if ran
the USA the way that Castro ran Cuba he would end up in front of a
firing squad. Talk about self-dramatization. Talk about purple
fantasies. This business reminds me quite a bit of the
scandal-mongering over Philip Foner's plagiarism, pushed by Melvin
Dubofsky. It is a curious mixture of the oedipal complex and cold war
liberalism and distasteful through and through.
