a socialist revolution can be made only by marxists, or only by socialists,

Well OBVIOUSLY NOT. But what is the connection between THAT and NOT
responding on THIS list to Papist propaganda by a Stalinist dupe?

As Richard Levins remarked recently on this lists -- aren't marxists used to
contradictions?

But I have a question. Does anyone on this list seriusly hold a socialist
revolution can be made only by marxists, or only by socialists, or only by
revolutionaries even.

A revolution that is suppored only by conscious revolutionaries is dead from
the start.
