          Lew and Darren,   I love the pamphlet!  It is brilliant but I also wonder about the word Marxism in the title, after the democratically derived fact.

            Lew and Darren,
             
            I love the pamphlet!  It is brilliant but I also wonder about the word 'Marxism' in the title, after the democratically derived fact.  No problem with that, though!  The A-Z of Marxism pamphlet is a superb exposition of the case for 'real' socialism - which should be extremely useful to interested students and general readers.  Of course, Marx goes in and out of fashion, but sometimes 'Socialist' rote learners forget the Marxian method and revert to dogma.  In the public synthesis of our politics I think we have a tendency to play down the 'Revolutionary' element.  This is facetious on my part in some ways, but also a genuine point I wish to make about the difficulty and the reality of the perception of language associated with our movement.  It seems we are hidebound by linguistic expressions which have negative connotations rather than Human aspirational content for people in the thick of Capitalist exploitation.
