Well, I never said I supported Titoist politics: he was pretty orthodox a Stalinist on the National Question, and the federalsim solution advocated by Marxism-Leninism is conducive to breakup in both planning and market systems, as we see in the former Soviet Union. Be that as it may. I still it is pretty eich to attack me for defending the markets socialist core of the former Yugoslav model, and then to defend its executioner, Milosovic, as a proponent of socialsm. Taht and not the merits of specific details of Yugoslavia's former arargngemenst is the issue. --jks
