You should consider former CP leader Jay Lovestone who became a major player
in the CIA -AFL-CIO cold war alliance for world capitalist hegemony. And all
the ex-CPers who helped start the super influential right wing National
Review. And then there were all those ex-CPers who just became apolitical
businesmen. (I know a few.) Hayden is a saint next to them.
I think the difference in our current politics is not over issues, since I
agree with you on the ones that you mention (I think)- but your sort of
biblical tendency to say if you are bad on a few issues, then that is so
significant that nothing else counts. And I tend to say ok you're terrible
here and there (and that sucks) but you're still ok on 90% so I'm not putting
you in Horowitz land. And I would even vote for you as mayor of LA. Actually
you think Hayden and the others live in a place worse than Horowitz land. You
know, there was a time when the CP called liberals and social dems - Social
Fascists. It turned out to be a big mistake.
