The issue of degrowth compounds the evolution/revolution dilemma…china’s capitalism

February 23rd, 2018 · No Comments

https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/02/23/china-cant-save-capitalism-from-environmental-destruction/ Given China’s huge contribution to global warming and the heavy pollution it suffers from, such statements are welcome. But does this truly mean that China will now become a country that puts the environment first and, perhaps, save capitalism from its excesses? That is very unlikely, given Beijing’s integration into the world capitalist system […]

Beyond the evolutionary/revolutionary divide…

February 22nd, 2018 · No Comments

Below is an archived post from last year. Let’s restate the point in a new way: our distinctions of evolutionary/revolutionary have (deliberately) created a division in thought bridged by our idea of ‘virtual revolution’. But at this point one suspects that if an evolutionary path is taken up it will sooner or later confront the […]

Revolutionary communism as a demiurgic projection?

February 21st, 2018 · No Comments

Revolutionary communism as a demiurgic projection? As we have noted several times here, the left has its own ‘ace up its sleeve’ on the issue of religion. If atheism wishes to negate the ‘god’ issue, all well and good: the amount of gibberish on the subject deserves an ‘atheist’ ‘contre’, quotation marks or not. But […]

A ‘dialectic’ of revolution/virtual revolution

February 13th, 2018 · No Comments

https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=Two+Manifestos+version+2.pdf We have almost deliberately indulged a kind of ‘dialectic’ of revolution/virtual revolution, the latter a way station as we confront the immensely dangerous and conflicted theme of revolutionary action. In fact we are confronted by a situation that is almost demanding a revolutionary response and yet the prospect of that seems remote, as yet, […]

If a revolution occurred tomorrow does the left even have a platform?

February 13th, 2018 · No Comments

As with the french and russian revolutions the onset will be unexpected but we need to be ready with the right framework when the moment comes. The current left is spasmodic and too focused on the marxist legacy. That legacy is fine the way it is and yet it is necessary to ‘leap out of […]

Revolutionary communism as a demiurgic projection?

February 4th, 2018 · No Comments

The text of WHEE completely bans any form of theistic/creationist speculation, but outside of that boundary we have ventured, as in Enigma of the Axial Age to consider, the context of ‘atheism’ the question of Bennett’s demiurgic powers, Kant’s demiurge, and the question of ‘Gaian meta-evolution’. Again, this is speculative and has not place in […]

http://darwiniana.com/2018/02/03/a-socialist-case-for-curbing-consumption-to-stop-climate-change/ We need more than a curb of consumption: we a new form of economy/society, one that even marxists cans seem to envision. Part of the reason, despite claims that marx was really an ecological socialist, is that classic socialism is focused, not without reason, on the working class and its need for growth economics […]

Eonic effects, revolutionary outcomes

February 1st, 2018 · No Comments

https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=Two+Manifestos+version+2.pdf It seems that a reluctance to promote the ‘eonic model of world history’ confronted with the marxist legacy is misguided and that a more forceful presentation of that is indicated. We can always up to a point have our cake and eat it too and place the components of the marxist legacy inside our […]

January 27th, 2018 · No Comments

http://www.nybooks.com/daily/2018/01/26/the-great-british-empire-debate/: The Great British Empire Debate We need to reiterate our consideration that it was a mistake to see capitalism as a stage of history: democracy, economic democracy, should have embraced a socialist framework from the start. In fact, a close look shows that the early modern attempted to do just that, from the proto-communism […]
