Hi Ian:

Yes, but it's worthwhile remembering that the WSWS site
is published by the International Committee of the Fourth
International whereas the LCR is part of the United
Secretariat of the Fourth International. There has been
bad blood between these two rival groups for many decades
so the negative tone of the article shouldn't be surprising.

The alternative, suggested in another article at the WSWS site
("French workers need a socialist perspective to fight the
economic crisis"), which they give to "workers and young
people looking for a socialist alternative to mass unemployment
and poverty" is to:

"read the WSWS, contact the ICFI, and fight to build
a section of the ICFI in France".

Not much of an alternative, is it?

In solidarity, Jerry
