Falsifying historical scientism

The eonic effect as a falsification of most historical/evolutionary theories…
January 14th, 2018 ·

We have frequently used the data for the so-called eonic effect as a way to debrief dogmatic historical theories, hopefully without creating a new dogma. in fact the so-called ‘eonic effect’ is itself quite tricky but can be taken in a very simple way as a periodization that works as a simple empirical chronicle. We confront an analysis of a developmental construct of such elusive complexity that we will repent of the usual brands of sociological theory. Two stark realities confront the theorist, forcing the theorist to strike out:

R48G: socialisms doomed to social democratic finale
January 16th, 2018 ·
It is debatable whether it is worth reading an article in the New Republic about socialism. As I started reading I wondered how many paragraphs would pass before we were treated to social democratic blah blah. It didn’t take long. We get the whole package of malarkey, including Bernstein no less.

R48G: the empty rhetoric of democracy without an equality of the commons
August 4th, 2017 ·

The idea of communism has been so discredited that we forget that in some form it is the only solution to the problem of fairness, and thence of democracy: our current system promotes the theme of democracy in order to covertly promote forms of inequality, and domination by the economics of capital.

R48G: a challenge to decline with a democratic/communist revolution….: floating fourth turning points…
August 21st, 2017 ·
The
http://darwiniana.com/?s=floating+fourth+turning+points

We have created the mirror image of ‘decline’ in our idea of floating fourth turning points:

we are inside a system that is hybrid with free agency and we can envision take control of the larger system and/or adapting the idea of ‘revolution’ to the process of reforming/upgrading/transcending an historical system. The idea is important even if we consider ourselves unable to perform such a complicated task in full. We could with this in mind attempt to create a new democratic communism in a social creation at a higher level…
But the more general issue is that we must try to understand our own ‘evolution’ and in the case of civilization asking if we could replicate the eonic effect, a massively complex and elusive task!

Leftist confusion over darwinism

January 23rd, 2018 · No Comments

A leftist make over on the issue of evolution?
December 13th, 2017 ·
One of the most remarkable confusions of modern culture is the way a reductionist version of evolution, viz. darwinism came into being to displace a promising set of starts that were on the right track. The left has been a particular victim of this botched starting point. The left needs a complete make over on the issue of evolutionary theories, and a redress against its tendency to condone implicitly the social darwinist implications of the natural selectionist perspective and its fundamentalists…

R48G: the revolutionary impulse and modernity/antimodernity
March 13th, 2017 ·

One of the ironies of the analysis of the antimodernists and their calls for some kind of ‘new age’ epoch (the aquarian age meme was one such piece of nonsense) is that modern revolutionary dynamism itself is both modern and antimodern at the same time:

https://www.marxist.com/britain-marxists-scare-the-tory-press-and-bourgeois-academics.htm

Neo-communism should not even bother to defend the bolshevik record: the facts of the case are that ‘communism’ was never tried because it became an experiment run by a single dictotor, etc…A new socialism must offer something close to a guarantee that such deviations won’t be considered valid exemplars.

We have tried to offer something very different, yet intrinsically neo-communist without false compromises…

The Black Block is really a kind of guerilla movement and should leave alone the simple gesture of public protest along radical (socialist) lines. The left needs public demonstrations for a socialist transition that does not indulge in the kind of semi-violent tactics that egregiously threaten demonstrations as such…

Futile discussions of decline, the west, ‘civilization(s)’, etc…Focusing on the ‘eonic effect’….

January 22nd, 2018 · No Comments

http://www.marxmail.org/msg149135.html: [Marxism] Is Western civilisation is about to hit the skids?

These discussions are mostly futile given the vagueness of the terminology and the incorrect or fallacious use of terms like ‘decline’ and ‘civilization’.
There is a difference between a possible decline of the so-called west and the larger global perspective where the issue is the global modernity that has come into being beyond the issue of nationalism and/or the cultural ethnocentricity of a focus on a given culture.
The study of the eonic effect is the only real model available: history-and-evolution.com…

The issue is not ‘western civilization’ but the modern transition which is rapidly becoming global…
