Comrade Nikogda,
You are most correct, it is only a THOUGHT that we are on a list for the 
reaffirmation of Marxism-Leninism as it appears we are on a list of 200+ 
members with only 3 that oppose Melvin's revisionisn whil the other 197+ accept 
it and allow it to flourish.  In this light it is worthless to oppose 
opportunism because the moderators allow it and castigate those of us who do 
oppose it therefore it stands to reason that the list no longer reaffirms 
Marxism-Leninism but rather tolerates revisionism.

"Stalin's old formula of what constitutes economic communism in its first
and higher phase cannot be applied to America because it is based on a
specific state of development of productive forces in the 1930's - 
1950's Soviet

"Actually, only Marx general outline is applicable today."

And here I thought we were in a list for the reaffirmation of 
Marxism-Leninism! WL = Earl Browder, in retirement. Earl Browder also 
liked to pigeonhole Soviet socialist construction as something 
without meaning or application in the USA, meanwhile insisting that 
"communism is 20th century Americanism." Obviously 21st century 
anything anywheres on the one hand, and specific material conditions 
of the Soviet Union at some other point in time on the other, cannot 
be compared in the specificity of their details. BUT THE *UNDERLYING 
MANDATORY MINIMUM for all those working classes engaged in socialist 
construction anywhere since.

But first things first: when the U.S. working class has disposed of 
the power of the US imperialist bourgeoisie - and not before -they 
will decide how things go from there...
