Th pliticl mthd f th Intrntinl Scilist rgnistin (ssy)    Rstring th vlidity f th scilist prjct is nt mrly cdmic. Th vnts f 1989-90 hv bn sn s th dth f cmmunism nd scilism nd th finl triumph f Wstrn cpitlism.

Th stnding f Mrxism nd th whl scilist prjct hs nvr bn lwr. It is nt nly th frmr supprtrs f th strn urpn rgims tht hv dispprd (in th cs f th Cmmunist Prty f ustrli), r fdd (in th cs f th Scilist Prty f ustrli); th lft s whl hs suffrd mlis.
