If this is true, I am afraid that the position of the ISO has little
chances to win the souls of the Zimbabwean people to socialism. If
this is true, I am afraid, the ISO is becoming one of the main
obstacles for the establishment of a Zimbabwean section of a worldwide
network of revolutionary socialists. If this is true, the ISO will be
remembered (if ever) in the annals of Zimbabwean history as just
another group who sided with the imperialists. And in the annals of
socialism as just another group that discredited socialism as
"eurocentric" and thus carried water to the "native bourgeoisies'"
bucket in the Third World.

This might sound Stalinist to Louis Pr., but I am afraid it would have
just sounded sensible to Trotsky.

And now, off to my own business.
