>>> Carrol Cox <cbcox at> 04/16/00 07:31PM >>>The AFL-CIO has defined the terms of the debate *for the present*, and
it's my empirical judgment at this time that all criticism of the Chinese Govt. *will be heard* as agreement with the national chauvinism (and implicit racism) of the AFL-CIO position. No theoretical principle is involved. The vocabulary does not exist in the United States, now, to make criticism of China a valid part of a mass movement.


CB: As important as the racist connotation of AFL-CIO criticism of China is the anti-communist connotation.
