D. Yaffe, can you offer a quotation from my posts in support of your accusation that I back imperialism or the oppressors over the oppressed? I assume you have clearly identified these items that allegedly uncover my undemocratic nature…   Please, let’s be serious. Let’s try to avoid propaganda which only satisfies the thirst of retaliation on behalf of your Stalinist militancy. OPE is intended to be beyond this, isn’t it?   Regards,A.

I totally share Jerry's view. There is little point in continuing the discussion without understanding class interests. Democracy is simply a bourgeois concept in Alejandro's hands - it stands for the status quo - the rule of the imperialists, the oppressors over the oppressed.

What you consistently refuse to do is introduce *class* into the analysis of the meaning of democracy and dictatorship. Because you don't employ class analysis, you are trapped in a narrow BOURGEOIS understanding of the meaning of democracy - you fail to grasp the meaning of BOURGEOIS DEMOCRACY. The many millions of people who don't share the US- and Euro-Centric liberal capitalist interpretation of democracy and the goals of international imperialism understand that that *any* government which is in favor in practice of self-determination and governance and control of the economy by working people will be denounced by imperialism and its defenders as being dictatorships. The question isn't who is or isn't an apologist for "left wing dictators"; the question is who is an apologist for capital and imperialism.   In solidarity, Jerry_______________________________________________ ope mailing list
