R48G: the template of a neo-communist revolution

July 29th, 2017 · No Comments

https://www.dropbox.com/s/d1fmhfcq4xithv4/Democratic_Market_Neo_Communism_ver_5.pdf?dl=0 Our discussions of ‘democratic market neo-communism’ are an attempt to deal with the obsessive compromises that always overtake leftist positions resulting in the usual social democratic wishing well of ‘social democratic’ fantasy. This combination, DMNC, itself seems like compromise, but it implies something quite revolutionary, roughly the same perspective as the original Communist Manifesto […]

beyond boilerplate leninism…//“Finland Station” and the Struggle for Socialism Today

July 29th, 2017 · No Comments

We need to face the reality that modern revolutions for freedom were not gandhian movements. Source: [Marxism] Fwd: ICNC – Why Violence Undermines Protest

R48G: the ‘utopian’ versus ‘scientific’ socialism debate is misleading: we must act now as free agents to create a revolutionary socialism….and soon

July 29th, 2017 · No Comments

We need a new variant of classic marxism without its limiting suggestion about stages of history: capitalism must be confronted now as a result of our freely chosen decisions to create a just economic system, and one that is not so destructive.
