Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not making moral judgements here, or even political ones, merely observing the sociological realities of organisational dynamics. If you choose to challenge state party leaderships, whingeing when they fight back hardly enhances your cause. If your ultimate aim is to lead the party into a successful general election, you need to ultimately get the vast  bulk of the party - leadership and rank and file - on your side. If your starting point is that the party is basically an immoral amalgam of illegitimate special interests, careerist politicians, and stupid dupes who don't realise what's going on, don't be surprised when they aren't quick to rally to your side.
