The end of capitalism has begun …

Paul Mason writes a long, interesting but wrongheaded article embracing the ideas of John Holloway without mentioning him.

As with the end of feudalism 500 years ago, capitalism’s replacement by postcapitalism will be accelerated by external shocks and shaped by the emergence of a new kind of human being. And it has started.

Why would anyone give cover to the JFK or 9/11 conspiracies?

The left out in left field…Is Chomsky giving cover for Israel on 9/11 //Solving 9-11: The Deception That Changed the World: Christopher Lee Bollyn
May 3rd, 2017 ·

It is essential for the left to free itself from suppression of consideration of the 9/11 conspiracy. Denouncing all this as ‘conspiracy theory’ is a disservice to everyone else on the left who end up being ostracized by celebrity leftists who monopolize the ‘bullshit front’. One can certainly take up a critique of the strong challenge/expose of Israel in this book but at this point the overall evidence taken minimally points to a covert operation involving the US, the Israelis with a role on the part of the Saudi covert agencies, we must suspect.
We must suspect in fact that attempts to give Israel cover have behind the scenes played a strong role here.

Chomsky seems to have set the standard of confusion, if not lies, on JFK and 9/11

We went through all of this with Chomsky on 9/11. But he was one of the original JFK assassination conspiracy denialists. To have an opinion here is one thing but to throw one’s weight around and make the issue a litmus test is atrocious and a lot of people on the left have been effectively sidelined by this strange mindset which we have seen in St. Clair in a post today.

Who the fuck is Jeffrey St. Clair? In your face asshole…to paly Pope on the magic bullet theory is stupid

July 21st, 2017 · No Comments

I am a little puzzled at the failure of the left on the issues of JFK and 9/11. And many are getting a little tired of the dogmas peddled here. Apparently this Mr. St. Clair is some kind of leftist bigwig who thinks he can pronounce the view required by card carriers. But this game is pretty much all washed up. I am no expert on the JFK assassination but anyone who promotes the one bullet theory with such arrogant condescension is a puzzle and puts people who are less naive with their backs to the wall.

The confusion over a science of evolution has gone on so long the issue becomes disheartening. There can be no left of the old style that embraces the social darwinist ideology of darwinism. The left has on occasion tried to extricate itself form the trap but overall the mass brainwashing of the public by darwinism, including most scientists and leftists in or outside of the field of biology is grim to behold. The right has had a field day exposing the truly idiotic claims of hard-core darwinists and yet even now noone seems to have a clue. [Read more →]

The communist church of munzer? a played out theme but perhaps its the idea that counts…

July 21st, 2017 · No Comments

Our discussions of religion and the left are a bit played out: the theme of the Munzerian communist church is a great idea but it won’t happen even though proposing it can be helpful to christians who are disoriented by the kind of scientism frequent on the left. The result is that those moving beyond the christian tradition are stranded in a wilderness of leftist incomprehension.
We live in a culture, and it is broader than any given culture, where everyone universally is confused in equal and opposite ways. What a hopeless case!

I wrote a series of posts here on Harris forthcoming book, but they were too harsh and I dumped them at The Gurdjieff Con.

We can proceed with a dialectical approach to Harris’ idea. later…

Meanwhile it is of interest to consider our idea of a challenge to historical materialism (with marxist praxis remaining intact) [Read more →]

time to scrap the phony ‘green’ party for a real socialist effort? //Green Party Growing Pains; Our Own Crisis of Democracy

July 21st, 2017 · No Comments

The Green Party is a distracting failure that is half-way between some kind of environmental movement and half-way from socialism.
Why not scrap this useless fudge and start over with a genuinely socialist platform…

Bullshit, Mr. Saint Clair //Red State, Blue State; Green State, Deep State

July 21st, 2017 · No Comments

I am mindful of the confusions of the JFK assassination and equally of 9/11 but to dismiss the research here from the left as conspiracy theory is incomprehensible. This issue is good evidence the left has its head ‘way up’…

I first encountered the phrase “Deep State” in the writings of the Canadian Peter Dale Scott (a fellow Eng. Lit major), though the predicate of the theory far predates Scott’s relatively docile explorations of the dark forces manipulating the secret management of the Empire. The origin myth of leftwing Deep State theory is, of course, the assassination of JFK, an act of internal regime change by a CIA hit-team orchestrated by Allen Dulles in retaliation for the president’s alleged plan to break-up the agency and yank US troops out of Vietnam. From that moment on, according Deep State theorizers, the secret government was firmly in control and no political transgressions against its agenda would be tolerated. As an omnipotent force, the existence of a Deep State satisfies the Left’s desire to rationalize its own sense of perennial powerlessness.

The propaganda of capitalism is very strong, and the record of Bolshevik cooptation of the socialist/communist idea was so complete, that we never consider the context of global capitalism as it is, and the danger it poses as it proceeds unchecked. [Read more →]

Pinketty on Marx and the distraction of Marx’s theories

Yesterday’s post on Marx’s theories is confusing to dedicated marxists, and I hope my thinking wasn’t misunderstood. We can apply a dialectic and defend Marx’s theories and there are many works that do this very well. We should therefore, of course, try to see the way those theories help us to expose capitalist ideology, and ready a clear, concise, and useful depiction of those theories. There are a lot of good renderings according this approach. [Read more →]

Stream and sequence: dynamics, aesthetics, and the limited interpretations of modernity
March 14th, 2014 ·

The ‘stream and sequence’ set on world history

This analysis of the future of civilization using the ‘stream/sequence’ model is not entirely intuitive, but its basic insight is surprisingly robust, if only because it makes no predictions. Instead it exposes the way thinking about the past can confuse us, in the process of trying to learn from the past. The ‘decline’ scenario, based mostly on the ‘decline of the Roman Empire’ is misleading, most of all because it induces false comparisons, matched with a kind of inevitability. The point here is simply to see that the future is openended, but with limits.
