[Marxism] Why the two groups in Australia had no hopes of fusing

This from Nick Fredman of the Socialist Alliance, an arguably less 
sectarian group:

"Oakley, for example, suggests that capitalism “cannot” be overthrown 
without an “insurrection”, a term usually denoting an armed revolt 
(perhaps Oakley did not mean this). We’d prefer to adapt the slogan of 
the nineteenth century Chartist movement: “peaceably if we can, forcibly 
if we must”."

They fucking can't get together because of differences over what 
approach to take to armed struggle. In a country no less that has a 
heavy fog of "depoliticization" hanging over it? God help us.
