R48G: Russia was never suitable ground for a communist experiment, and its fallacious strain simply leaves the question of socialism/communism open: never tried

Despite its great historical interest the question of the Russian revolution should be declared irrelevant. And the marxism that led up to it should be broken down and reanalyzed. [Read more →]

I think it is quite realistic to consider a ‘revolutionary’ option to the developing social, ecological and political crisis: willy-nilly the system will default to attempts to seize the future and we see that already underway on the right: [Read more →]

The complaint about ‘doing nothing’ is right: let’s consider the revolutionary potential of this absurd situation, next to the growing calamity of climate change, with Trump the denialist rolling back what little progress has been made.

The Russian Civil War

November 17th, 2017 · No Comments

https://www.marxist.com/the-russian-civil-war-an-international-struggle.htm
Despite our critique of classic marxism and leninism this account of the Civil War is compelling and asks if our construct, DMNC, ‘democratic market neo-communism’ can expect any realization via an evolutionary path. It is possible that by creating a mix of planned, market, and autonomous, with a true democratic system beyond external control by capitalists, an electoral path could bypass the revolution…Fat chance?

The French socialized medical system versus American…capitalist barbarism…

The disturbing realization of american barbarism…
https://jacobinmag.com/2017/11/single-payer-health-care-medicare

Americans, with our predatory health care system, can be easy to impress. The simple fact that the French can visit any health facility in the entire country, for example, seems astonishing. No provider is out of network, because there’s no such thing as a network. Instead, there’s a universal public insurance system that can’t turn applicants down, can’t terminate insurance, and almost never denies claims. [Read more →]

Toward a last international?!…//The rise and fall of the Second International
July 18th, 2017 ·

The passing of the 2nd international was long ago, and yet the marxist framework (that might have led to its failure) still persists. A new upgrade is needed for a ‘last international’. Part of the problem was the expectation that the working class would be revolutionary but the onset of the first world war demonstrated the limits of that hope, although we might well blame the politicians rather than the working class. We have created a kind of ‘dialectic’ of the universal and the working class with a critique of the narrow limits of the working class focus: the working class on a global scale remains a key component but in the US something strange has happened. Social engineering from the right has crated a monstrosity as we see in the issue of Trump’s ‘base’. That is not the same as the working class, no doubt…But we should reconsider the whole range of issues and ask why the working class should be given preference over everyone else: it has led to a confusion on the left and has stalled activism. The working class isn’t revolutionary. But it might be, with the a renewed discourse that is relevant to our current situation.

We Knew Julian Assange Hated Clinton. We Didn’t Know He Was Secretly Advising Trump.

http://portside.org/2017-11-17/we-knew-julian-assange-hated-clinton-we-didn%e2%80%99t-know-he-was-secretly-advising-trump

WikiLEaks offer to help Trump came less than two weeks after The Washington Post had revealed that Trump had boasted of sexual assault in comments recorded during the taping of an “Access Hollywood” episode in 2005. The recording caught Trump saying that, “when you’re a star,” you can “do anything” to women, even “grab them by the pussy.” WikiLeaks released its first batch of emails hacked from Clinton’s campaign less than an hour after that report was published.
