I read on wiki that the Party for Socialism and Liberation was a faction of the Workers World Party that broke off for unknown reasons. Does anyone know why the split happened? Also what is the key difference between the two parties? I have trouble telling the difference between their respective platforms.

heis93 in an old thread. Thought I responded to that thread but it must of been a different one. Neither PSL nor WWP have commented on why they split but I recall reading somewhere it had to do with leadership in the anti-war movement. PSL had ANSWER and WWP has TONC.

Thanks for that. Lately I've been re-evaluating my ideology and my party allegiance and have been looking at both the PSL and Workers World in particular. I can't tell which is more active and effective since my location makes it impossible to evaluate them in person, though the PSL is excellent about updating their activities online.

Maybe this will warrant an "I have drastically changed ideology" thread in Mir.
