Yes, but perhaps part of the problem was the Left's faith in the Labour
Party. Have we still not figured that out. It's disappointing to see that
Richard Seymour, who used to get this, has dived deep into such a failed
project. When your only mass movement is to the ballot box, a la Bernie
Sanders' campaign, why should anyone expect a deep commitment from the
voters?

Cheers,
John
