    One caveat: Strident as I am by nature, I very much try to unite the left in my praxis rather than divide. I am forward looking but also not trying to find a perfect organization to join. I am ready to make common cause with any democratically oriented comrades. As the Pope said, many people whom he admires have been Marxists. Me too, and I may be one myself, depending on the definition. Many "old school" communist movements made terrible mistakes. But, as Reinhold Niebuhr observed, they sometimes also accomplished incredibly difficult acts through great self-sacrifice. I don't wish to try to cover in a comment this broad topic, but just to note that we must learn from the past, but not all of the past was a mistake. For instance, I'm glad Fidel Castro kicked out Batista. While he has made many mistakes, it's not easy being Red, or even Pink, in a Green, as in Dollar, -driven blockaded CIA-sabotaged world. Please if interested in my deeper views, see my other diaries including my recent diary on Cuba for Anti-Capitalist Meetup.
