Although there have been attempts to paint this kind of criticism of the current leadership as that of a small fringe, I can assure you that it is not. I am not affiliated with the Communist Caucus or with the L4A group. I have spoken with members outside these current battle lines and organizations, and there is a concern that leadership has isolated and ossified itself. Several members I know with these concerns, including those with leadership roles, are unwilling to criticize leadership openly. This is not a sign of a healthy organization.
