And David, of course, is a long-time militant of the Lambertiste Fourth 
International, a group that was allied with Gerry Healy in his anti-Cuba 
obsession until it became obvious that he was utterly mad. David's group 
has about 100 members in the USA but despite that feels qualified to put 
this kind of nonsense on their website:

"Our democratic centralist method in all struggles means our membership 
collectively decides on effective and realistic demands and then fights 
together for those demands in the mass struggle. This method has enabled 
us to have a big national impact, for example, in the antiwar movement, 
the trade union movement, and the movement for a Labor Party. Collective 
political action is always more productive than individual action."

Delusions of Leninist grandeur.
