  2. isn’t the pot calling the kettle black ? the “marxism list” has effectively banned women from participating. that’s why if you take a look at the list archives, you will see that the m/f ratio is about 98:2.

  3. The Marxism list is nothing but a mailing list. Plus, we have had no rapes or cover-ups as far as I know.

  4. The sad story confirms what I have often suspected over the years from my contacts with “organized socialists” which is that their organizational ethos has less in common with any institutional form that might actually be accessible and responsible to working people and more in common with the Roman Catholic Church: male dominated, more concerned with doctrinal purity than practical realities except when it comes to covering up the sexual and other crimes of the hierarchs. There is truly nothing new under sun and good old boy’s networks function the same no matter what their theo-ideological pretensions.

  5. Hey Rob, I agree that the Leninist sects are absurd, but could you point me in the direction of some organizations of any kind that are not “make dominated”? Even the unions are, and that goes for the entire world.
