Look, if people can't survive without being a member of club, I guess
the Socialist Party's as good as any, but the idea that it's so you
can talk about socialism as laughable as is the assumption that you
can't so so when you support Nader or McKinney.

But you can't have it both ways and claim the heritage of the SP (Debs
and all) only to claim that it's just burst forth from the forehead of
Marx.

Goups do when they make fetishes of their own organization's needs at
the expense of the well-being of the broader movement are sects.  In
its electoral policy--rather a key part of being a "party"--the SP
seems to fit the bill just as surely as the SLP, the SWP, the PFP, ad
alphabetium.
