         Do you support the arguments that John H. made in his book?
         I regard them as erroneous, a very negative political influence
and as demonstrably refuted by events in Venezuela. I assume that a similar
inclination was behind Paul Z's question. John, of course, can take all the
time he needs to answer the questions Paul and I have posed. It's well over
a year, though, since I wrote my critique (which, the last I heard, was
waiting for a response from him so it could be published). The basic
question is pretty simple--- does he stand behind the arguments in his book?
         in solidarity,
