In the great tradition of the '60s teach-in, which was really a preach-in.Our Marxist group had an open discussion group and touted their "all inclusive, anything goes" format. Dandy. But read the fine print at the asterisk: "must be from a Marxist perspective." LOL!
This would be like the KKK holding a referendum on race: "No to equal rights for blacks!" and then expect advocates of equal rights to appear.
One of the groups attending is the "International Socialist Organization" whose website says:"The ISO stands in the tradition of revolutionary socialists Karl Marx, V.I. Lenin and Leon Trotsky in the belief that workers themselves--the vast majority of the population--are the only force that can lead the fight to win a socialist society."It has a branch in Madison, and the ISO's overall goals are:..."helping to build a number of struggles: the movement to stop war and occupation, fights against racism and anti-immigrant scapegoating, the struggle for women's rights like the right to choose abortion, opposing anti-gay bigotry, and standing up for workers' rights."http://www.internationalsocialist.org/what_we_stand_for.htmlAt least they're not Stalinists or Maoists!
Weren't there government sponsored "dialogues on race" back in the nineties? If I remember correctly no one was for school vouchers or against affirmative action.
least balanced..... ya mean more than this
"Workers themselves ... are the only force that can lead the fight to win a socialist society.""It has a branch in Madison."Hmmm...
I would imagine the socialists are pro-death penalty... their heroes were, in USSR and China. Oh, wait, that was for capitalists and other productive members of society, not murderers.Nevermind.
Hmmmm. Isn't the ISO a parallel organization to the ANSWER types who support North Korea and are pretty much unreconstructed Stalinists?And aren't such known for their willingness to accept all kinds of dissenting opinions?
