Letter in reply to “Seán Mac Stíofáin: An Unyielding Revolutionary”

“I must be honest and say that, like many others, I disagree with what I read as an unfairly generous appraisal of an anti-communist republican.

If the provisionals talked in any sense of ‘socialism’ it was a socialism of defending the Irish working class from capitalism’s excesses perhaps, but quite separate to Marxist socialism as we would understand it, with its agenda of seizing the means of production and the eradication of class distinction.”
