Blueprint(s) of a semi-specified ‘democratic market neo-communism’…

July 22nd, 2018 · No Comments

https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=Two+Manifestos+version+2.pdf To see the point about the failure to specify a practical bleuprint for communism by the marxist legacy we can point to our ‘Two Manifestos’, on ‘democratic market neo-communism’, and the relative specification of particulars.

How ‘stages of production’ theory misled a century of leftists and wrecked man’s socialist opportunity

July 22nd, 2018 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=stages+of+production+theory http://darwiniana.com/2018/07/22/booknotes-revolution-in-the-air-socialism-never-failed-because-noone-defined-anything-that-could-be-put-into-practice/ http://darwiniana.com/2018/07/19/the-legacy-of-stalinism-bolshevism-and-the-jews-grand-deceptions-zionist-intrigue-in-the-20th-and-21st-centuries/ We have frequently pointed to the way that ‘stages of production’ theory has miscast the questions of socialism/communism and driven the left to invariably fumble the ball when it comes to realizing an actual socialist project.

R48G: ‘it’s the market economy, stupid’: confronting planetary destruction by capitalist ‘deadly weapon’…. August 14th, 2017 · http://darwiniana.com/?s=R48G+revolution The question of revolution has been so distracted by its self-generated confusions that we are no longer able to put activist questions in right perspective. But we can at least make the point that current programs are […]

Creating a left platform…?//Everything You Wanted to Ask About Sects … But Were Afraid to Know

July 21st, 2018 · No Comments

One has to ask: is our diagnosis correct, that the flaws of marxism forever came home to roost, leaving the era of ’68 crippled from the start.

The post-gandhian age, but the persistence of non-violent tactics…

July 21st, 2018 · No Comments

We have often been critical of gandhi here, and noted that modern democratic revolutions were often violent affairs: revolutionary wars. That is not to propose violent tactics. Violence is too often counterproductive to be a real option. And the legacy of bolshevism turned millions into ‘gandhians’, supposedly. We should navigate the issue dialectically, with an […]
