This is quite the "Left" program of a very radical bunch of people.

This appeared in a "Left" newspaper, the Workers World.

Ironically for me, I am old enough to remember, a few decades ago, when people like the above, were absolutely DESPISED by the Left, and were called among other things, "Examples of Capitalist Decadence"!!!

Anybody Gay, for example, had to be sure and HIDE it - the Left parties like the Communists and Socialist Workers, had a POLICY OF EXPELLING ANYONE WHO WAS GAY - you see, they were called "unreliable" and were likely to be traitors to the Revolution and turn you over to the cops!

My Oh My HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED!!!!!!!!
