R48G: NOT our president…the stark reality of a revolutionary option…passive americans complicit in Trump’s crime against humanity…

June 30th, 2017 · 2 Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=+revolution We confront an almost grostesque situation between a lunatic climate denial pseudo-president, elected in a fraud, and a stark deadline for a response to emerging climate catastrophe. This situation once seemed to be incipient fascism, but in an irony the situation seems to be provoking a revolutionary response, at least in a kind of […]

The left has to perform a difficult transition to something better than ‘bourgeois democracy’ and ‘totalitarian communism’; it must make […]

June 30th, 2017 · No Comments

Materialism and the dialectic are useless baggage for a neo-communism May 17th, 2016 · https://www.nyu.edu/projects/ollman/docs/what_is_marxism.php Materialism and the dialectic are useless baggage for a neo-communism: this web page neatly summarizes the whole framework of Marx’s recasting of his sources, but the whole mindset if unnecssary and subjects any praxis to endless metaphysical, yes, metaphysical debates.

June 30th, 2017 · No Comments

Beyond the ‘end of history’ meme… May 11th, 2016 · Kant and the philosophy of history (Amazon) I strongly recommend anyone stuck in the ‘end of history’ morass to get beyond historical materialism and Hegel and adopt my far superior method based on Kant’s original essay on history, or Kant’s Challenge. This can bypass the […]

[Marxism] Fwd: Socialism’s Past and Future | The Nation

June 30th, 2017 · No Comments

For Pete’s sake, first we get Bhaskar Sunkara pontificating in a NY Times op-ed titled “Socialism’s Future May Be Its Past” and now we get a another load of crap in The Nation: Given that these major pillars of 19th-century socialism crumbled in the early 20th century, one might ask: Can the idea of socialism […]

An elegant resolution of ‘god gibberish’, big bucks? maybe//Faith in ‘god’ is bullshit: xtian theology as a disguised atheist samkhya

June 29th, 2017 · No Comments

christianity (xtianity) already has a far more elegant solution to the degraded question of ‘god’ and once we realize that its theology is a corrupted form of samkhya we have the clue to a real contemplation on ‘god’ as a mystery beyond the ‘cosmic triad’, assuming we have grounds for accepting the classic and ancient […]

 The ‘god talk’ syndrome and the profits of the prophets

June 29th, 2017 · No Comments

this is a pretty harsh take (there is a link to Huffpost) on ‘still another god book’ exploitation, scroll through the linked books at amazon for dozens more like it. We have talked about ‘reformation’ today but it is already a thriving industry, and a suspiciously profitable business. Our take on the eonic effect won’t […]

R48G: the eonic model and judeo-christianity, historical materialism, end of history discourse, and communism/democracy

June 29th, 2017 · No Comments

But the interpretation of this by christians and jews as divine revelation was a primitive precursor of the eonic effect and there is little we can […]

R48G: the eonic model as a set of questions…!

June 29th, 2017 · No Comments

The eonic model is useful because it cogently isolates a non-random pattern in world history but leaves it as is, open to interpretation and practical use as an outline based empirically. The more elaborate model can be left as set of questions and a warning that noone gets history straight…these questions can themselves take the […]
