Here is an appreciation of Gil Green, written by Michael Myerson. Late for sure, I came to appreciate Gil’s thinking and courage. As chair of the party for 14 years I attempted to advocate, as best I could, many of the concepts and practices that Gil advocated. In the end I (and some others) were unsuccessful in our efforts. As a result, I stepped down from my position in 2014. Two years later I resigned from the party. Actually, I realize now that, even if we had accomplished what we envisioned, it would have likely been too little too late. When the party split in 1991, both sides in this clash were, in effect, setting themselves up to fail.
