As far as I can make out Woods does not really get to grip with what Allin and I propose, nor even seriously get to grips with Dietrich's position.
I have challengd them to debate with us and say what they think is wrong with Towards a New Socialism, but so far there has been no response.

I guess Woods CAN imagine what you can't. Dieterich has received a
lot of criticism on the Left in Venezuela. In any event,
determining what is a "feasible" alternative depends on what you
mean by "feasible socialism". Are you using it in the same sense
as Alec Nove used it or in some other sense?
