The RCP’s Idol Worship
Posted by Jack Stephens on February 18, 2008
Burningman blogs on the Revolutionary Communist Party’s response to the Nine Letters to our Comrades, which was a group of critical letters on the RCP and it’s leadership by a former RCP member:
The Revolutionary Communist Party has decreed on a “matter of basic orientation.” The unsigned author(s) don’t mention the object of their scorn by name, but they call the Nine Letters to Our Comrades nothing but “completely dishonest and unprincipled attacks, including crude distortions of our views, aims, and methods.” The distortions and purported lies are not discussed, noted in particular or corrected. Off limits and not up for consideration. Decided. Think about that. Read the Nine Letters, then the RCP’s initial public response and hear the elastic snap.
