    Hi Tomsky,

    Or may I call you Tom?

    You hint that Vidal was right in his day but things are relevantly different now. That would imply that the two capitalist parties were farther apart on this issue than they now. It would imply the radical base of the Democrats was more radicalised than it is now. Information please

    Have you thought what you are saying? Are you hoping for the victory of a quasi-fascist party because it will bring capitalist contradictions into the. open and radicalise the crushed and defeated Democrats? We have heard the kind of talk before.

    Vidals closeness to the Establishment is precisely what gave him insight into their corruption. At the time when he was closest to JFK he produced a forgotten novel Washington DC which gave a deadly portrait of that warrior prince as a man on the make whose only moral code was the Mafia rule that favours must be returned

    Chomsky has always advocated that once every four years, in a swing state state where there is an appreciable worse option, you should vote against it. I don't see how that fact that has always said that makes it wrong

    I shall. not answer any more on this thread which could have been interesting. It has been swept down t he board by one of those eternal threads in which Lifeboaters express their deep interest each other.
