I find myself sincerely at a loss for a way to respond to Hester Eisenstein's essay; no doubt I am out of touch with U.S. feminism, but I have so much difficulty imagining a feminist world in which the readers of a women's studies journal need to be persuaded that "another world - a postcapitalist world - is possible" that I flounder for a way to begin. I'm not patient with rhetorical questions that solicit obvious answers, and faced with one taking the form (always popular on the left) of asking ominously, "Was it an unfortunate coincidence" that X occurred with Y, I am always tempted, for the hell of it, to say, "Yes!" To discover that relations of synchrony, complexity, and implication hold between events on the same historical plane is not to make an argument about them.
