Louis, I would be interested on your take on the Kasama project, former RCP people who seem to want to reject some of those boneheaded practices.

Max wrote a very good book on the Maoist party-building experiments in 
the 70s and 80s called "Revolution in the Air". I am afraid that he has 
lost a lot of the radicalism of his youth in the process of rejecting 
the boneheaded practices of the Maoist movement. Frankly, I don't 
understand this whole "mellowing" business. Now in my 64th year, I am as 
pissed off as I was in 1967 when I joined the SWP.
