We are closely watching what takes place in the CPUSA. We see the
similarity in our fight with right opportunism twenty years ago here,
but of course the stakes are rising with the crisis of capitalism
right around the world. It is not odd that ideological wavering
arises as revolutionary organizations are tested in the struggle and
as the need for struggle intensifies.

Keep up the fight; workers still have a world to win, for a while at
least. As we said, “We need affirmative action for Marxists in our
party.” Our last general secretary Wm. Kashtan correctly appraised
the mass expulsions, loyalty oaths and “trusteeships” imposed within
our party by the Hewison gang in 1990 as being copied from the
right-wing business union model of controlling members.

Peace and Socialism,
