Numsa's United Front: Forward to the Past?

This seems like a fair critique. I would add though that NUMSA's
progressive trajectory, its insistence on explicitly, and in detail,
counterposing its pro-socialist position to the pro-capitalist one of the
Alliance, seems to indicate the possibility of the union addressing
Duncan's points in a comradely way both in theory and practice.

PS: I have to admit I've never understood the critique of the Freedom
Charter on the nationalization point; critiques of underemphasizing or
distorting it, I get.
