I think that Last and First Men is beginning already to have a strong underground influence and I would recommend considering its framework. Marxism as current is doomed, so the only question is, how can we convey its essential ideas with getting stuck in its problems.
We need a blueprint for postcapitalism, a set of models of communist systems, and their economies, a discussion in the open of rights issues, class issues, and those in relation to the a ‘communist party class’ (that fiasco of boshevism)…There are a lot of things essential to success here, and the status of marxism can remain up in the air. If you adopt this approach many will try to exploit the situation for compromises that will effectively undo communism. But we can anticipate that, and here, ironically, marxism can be useful, if obsolete, as a standard of communist integrity.
The idea of communism has been the object of so much hatred, that this program would seem unrealistic. It is not, and the time is approaching when desperation tactics are going to take over. We need to be ready.
Many legacy marxists will find the ground shifting under their feet if they try to simply ignore/boycott LFM. A simple discussion is not a particularly radical….The public will suddenly realize that mainstream marxists are hiding from a debriefing of their subject…
