I have never seen a text that used the word "Weatherman" without at best falling into nonsense. Lou Proyet has made himself brain-damage through his obsession with this group of political trash. They were anti-political, and any discussion of them falls away from politics. They were not ultra-left because to be ultra-left you first have to be left, and they were not. They were trash. Leave them alone in their utter idiotic isolation.

Doug, I usually feel that I can follow your train of thought, but you lost me on this one. Weathermen?!

I liked the essay very much. I particularly liked the emphasis on lawbreaking -- the kind of lawbreaking that involves pitching a tent where the cops say you can't. That's absolutely vital.

Any proposition that seems self-evident is almost certainly false. ___________________________________ http://mailman.lbo-talk.org/mailman/listinfo/lbo-talk
