This is a great pamphlet IMO and should be widely shared.
One correction. It says:
"Perhaps also some on the left have a vague memory of the sharp turn of
Assad senior in the 1970s to state ownership of the entire economy, and are
unaware of the current regime’s switch to wholesale privatisation."
Actually the turn toward capital in rhetoric and in practice began under
Assad senior, who rose to power over the bodies of the more "left" (i.e.
bourgeois populist) wing of the Baath.
