analysis. If you want to use theologically categories that's fine but
try a list with George Bush or some other kind of fundamentalist. I
know you're being rhetorical and that labour politics is fucking
frustrating but this sort of talk will get us no-where.

should at least look over some of the discussion on the list. In WW1
the ALP split over the issue.
I have no particular love for the ALP but it doesn't help to make
polemics like this. Its frustrating but the enemy is CAPITAL - its
influence is evident in the ALP as in everything else. This kind of
talk reveals that as a revolutionary you don't know your history as
well as you should and by talking this way you simply isolate yourself
from the vast mass of people who have illusions in the ALP.
