That's fair enough, but just this small point - you said:

As John Holloway said, the right is beating up on us bad enough; we
be fighting each other.

It may be true that socialist ideology has taking a battering, but in
reality I think - if surveys are to be believed - an increasing fraction of
the world population is actually moving to the Left in terms of their
personal values. They might not call themselves socialist, but in terms of
their values they are, or close to it. In that sense, "we" haven't been beat
up at all - the only sense in which this might be true, is that many people
believe there is no alternative to private enterprise capitalism as
organisational form, or that they cannot see any.
