[OPE-L] debate on labor aristocracy

Some of the latest installments in this long debate include an article in
June, 2006 by Charlie Post called "The Labor Aristocracy Myth"


and a reply by Steve Palmer entitled "Labour Aristocracy: mythmakers and
their mistakes" appears in the current issue of _Fight Racism! Fight


Part of this debate concerns which position has "grave empirical
problems". See the tables in the _FRFI_ article which, according
to Palmer, "completely corroborate Lenin's analysiu of imperialism
and totally undermine Post's argument".

Does anyone on the list want to take a position on this debate?  Which
side does the data (by which I mean all of the relevant data, rather than
only that presented by Palmer) support?

In solidarity, Jerry
