October 17th, 2017 · No Comments

As outrageous as the JKF conspiracy is, the dismissal of the evidence on the left is even worse… Approximately 700 pages of secret material from the files of two high-ranking CIA officers, William K. Harvey and David Phillips, who ran assassination operations in the 1960s.

R48G: revolution or extinction

October 17th, 2017 · No Comments

There are many new activist initiatives suddenly being spawned in the period since 2008 to the OWS, and now in the wake of Trump. One thing we have done here, if only because it is appropriate that someone slightly to the outside to adopt this dialectical complement, is to inject the idea of revolutionary action, […]

From Lamarck and the teleomechanists to the fallacies of darwinism

October 17th, 2017 · No Comments

ttp://www.npr.org/2016/08/27/491492977/in-tom-wolfes-kingdom-speech-is-the-one-weird-trick Wolfe has raised an obvious point: we have no really convincing picture of the ‘evolution’ of speech, let alone man as a whole.

Capitalism as totalitarian?

October 17th, 2017 · No Comments

The Axial Age (and macro model) as a key to getting past the confusions of religion/anti-religion (to say nothing of darwinism) We have been critical of the ‘usual left’ because it has been neutralized by its own history, by the ‘end of history’ propaganda, and by the rapidly escalating forms of domination emerging from the […]

Mode of production theory and the macro model’s intermittent/terminating character

October 17th, 2017 · No Comments

Red Forty-eight Group: mode of production theory, the econostream and the macro sequence Criticizing historical materialism, or mode of production theory, can be counterproductive and I suggested a way to see how a mode of production discourse could be embedded in the macro model.

R48G: confronting the american fascist monstrosity in the climate emergency

October 17th, 2017 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=red+forty-eight+group+fortyeight http://darwiniana.com/?s=market+neo-communism+communism The idea of a new political party is nice, cute, but one more just now is superfluous while what is needed is a movement of movements to move as much as possible into the climate emergency situation. But I think that the idea of a virtual neo-communist movement should proceed on the sidelines,

R48G: regions of planet to be evacuated?

October 16th, 2017 · No Comments

http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/27/world/persian-gulf-heat-climate-change/ I think that the climate crisis tends to induce a form numbness and the extraordinary news in this article (research here) fails to register.
