R48G: remorphing liberal democracy one to one with DMNC shows the ‘end of history’ argument can apply to both systems…

May 9th, 2017 · No Comments

Let us reiterate our argument in the last post (quoted below): Read our depiction of DMNC and note that the system is essentially the same as a liberal market system and yet different in the way it remorphs one to one the basic elements into a neo-communism of the Commons. But the whole liberal apparatus […]

R48G: the irony that the ‘end of history’ argument undermines the status of american pseudo-democracy: it is collapsing on the way to the real endgame

May 4th, 2017 · No Comments

One of the great ironies of the ‘end of history’ debate is that if we take its thesis seriously the directionality of history so proclaimed by Fukuyama will move beyond the pseudo-democracy of liberal capitalism to ‘real democracy’. We see not one but two failures in this directional framework: the failure of bolshevism and now […]

Red Forty-eight Group: historical theories vs an ultra simple version of the macro model…the pernicious dangers of Fukuyama’s ‘end of history’ lies

November 30th, 2016 · No Comments

Although it is hard to change gears and adopt a new view, especially given the controversial character of the macro model (history-and-evolution.com…), it is important to at least withdraw from theories as such and move into an empirical history that can inform action without decreeing a theory about history. The macro model stretches between ultra […]

Beyond the ‘end of history’ nonsense to the real issue of the invitability of constitutional communism, with or without market economies…

August 24th, 2016 · No Comments

Discussions of ‘communism’ are almost impossible in the current environment although the OWS/Sanders movements show something shifting in the landscape. But we can at least point to the difference between economic theorizing, revolutionary ideology, and the simple constitutional issues of primitive accumulation and the way in which Capital has expropriated the universal heritage of the […]

The solution to Kant’s Challenge (and the Hegelian idiocy over the end of history) is sixteen years old, but the academic community refuses to even look at the solution

A whole generation has been turning in circles around the ‘end of history’ nonsense, a fictitious discourse, while a simple solution to the question, […]

Blogbook etc++: The endgame of ‘end of history’ boilerplate

April 11th, 2016 · No Comments

On the way to a larger version of this blogbook we can summarize its drift: (this section goes into section 3.2 as below?) diagnosing the crisis of modernity, as a response to confusing postmodern analyses: the crisis refers to the outcome of modernity, not is core axioms, but its realization, and we can see the […]

Focus on the obvious: neo-communism at the ‘almost the end of history’

March 18th, 2016 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/2016/03/17/what-are-the-prospects-of-direct-revolutionary-action/ The legacy of communism has confused the simple question: the idea arose as a prophecy of the end of capitalism, and that prophecy, now ruined by the image of bolshevism, was never more appropriate. It has a host of interpretations: at this point simply being able to take charge of industrial formations that are […]

…progress toward a perfect civil constitution…from Hegel’s ‘end of history’ to Kant’s progression of civil constitutions…

January 25th, 2016 · 1 Comment

https://www.dissentmagazine.org/article/images-of-socialism-irving-howe-lewis-coser-spring-1954 Ideas of socialism and communism are no longer utopian: it is capitalism that is utopian. It posits a world where no limits on markets are required. As we can see that is totally unrealistic and threatens to destroy a whole planet. We must have limits on markets. We could construct that inside the current […]

Zizek’s feint on the ‘end of history’ in Last and First Men….?

January 8th, 2015 · No Comments

http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/nov/12/terry-eagleton-trouble-in-paradise-absolute-recoil-zizek-review Eagleton and Zizek already belong to an older generation of the left (I can hardly exempt myself). So what? I would be more polite if Zizek’s last two books weren’t indirectly referring to my Last and First Men, to be sure he has covered the equivalent ground.

End of history, versus decline and fall

November 18th, 2014 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/2014/11/16/a-note-on-the-decline-analog/ One of the things that becomes clear from the ‘end of history’ question, dwelt on at length in Last and First Men, https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/75650151/LFM_review_copy_selections.pdf, is the way that a communist revolution has to create a ‘rebirth of freedom’. That is either inspiring or a catch-22. The rapid decline of the integrity of the American system […]

Zizek running scared with Last and First Men: new books on the ‘end of history’ and ‘dialectical materialism’

September 11th, 2014 · No Comments

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/75650151/LFM_review_copy_selections.pdf Writing Last and First Men came from the realization that the marxism-dominated left was both thriving and defunct. If we check out http://marxandphilosophy.org.uk/reviewofbooks we see a relatively thriving field of left discourse, but a closer look shows that the core assumptions of a failed marxism are an invariant of otherwise fresh thinking.

The ‘end of history’ meme as a pillar of the neoliberal age

September 11th, 2014 · No Comments

The work of Fukuyama on the ‘end of history’ has been one of the hidden pillars of the neo-liberal age, but its basic core serves the opposite argument: the reign of capitalism was seen from the beginning as temporary or transitional. But the propaganda of capitalism has entered the unconscious and has turned into a […]
