i agree that Christie's embrace of Schwartz as a useful commentator/reviewer in Arena #2 was a serious blunder. but Christie wasn't the only anarchist to blunder, nor was he the only radical to be taken in by cold war anti-stalinism. it is certainly to your credit that once you discovered Schwartz's connections, you publicly repudiated your past collaborations along with his nefarious associations. but your repudiation of Schwartz doesn't outweigh your subsequent idiotic shenanigans, just as Christie's embrace of him doesn't outweigh the positive contributions he made to radical anti-state internationalism.
