R48G: hyparxis and revolutionary futurism…

December 11th, 2017 · No Comments

The sidelines is not really OK, but it is still something. It could be cowardly, but maybe […]

Dialectic of revolutionary potential

December 10th, 2017 · No Comments

Idea of virtual revolution counterproductive? merry-go-round ‘dialectic’ of revolutionary potential March 26th, 2017 · 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 […]

Facing reality: the revolutionary option…Downton Abbey and other fascist phantasms…

December 6th, 2017 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=revolution Trump’s idiocies, crimes, and botched/fascist presidential parodies are close to generating a revolutionary option as, well, the main option. There is, to be sure, a lot to be said against that. Our idea of virtual revolution needs to be exposed as a way to allow the fainthearted, and intelligent skeptics, to at least consider […]

R48G: eonic effects, a new model of history and virtual revolution May 12th, 2017 · 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.

R48G: reform or revolution …

December 5th, 2017 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=virtual+revolution Our seemingly consistent critique of ‘reformist leftism’ is, of course, misleading because we have also made ‘compromise’ a studied angle with our idea of ‘virtual revolution’ which embraces the whole contradiction. That in addition to hybrid of markets and communism. This is not really compromise but quiet desperation.

December 5th, 2017 · No Comments

We are in a strange situation: we are almost forced into the revolutionary option, but the chance seems remote in the extreme. We see the dilemma in the jargon of the Berniacs about ‘our revolution’ which isn’t really a platform so much as a pun. We should prepare in any case for the turning point […]

Red Forty-eight Group: a superset and replacement for marxism? Too chicken to publicly deal with revolution? what a useless gang of hasbeens

December 4th, 2017 · No Comments

March 17th, 2017 · No Comments We keep harping on the issue of marxism and this is essential if the current marxist left is stalled in its perspective inherited from the nineteenth century. The problems here are manifold, among them the legacy of having been tried, and thus tarred with the outcome of bolshevism. Thus […]

from last year…R48G: revolutionary options

December 2nd, 2017 · No Comments

Our posts over time scotching actual ‘revolution’ are not really to the point: we have consistently suggested ‘revolutionary options’ here, and equally the idea of ‘virtual revolution’, with a deliberate contradiction. The point is to be able to suggest an evolutionary version of our thinking and to consider the dangers of the idea of ‘real […]

From dumbfounding of america to revolutionary re-start/refoundation

December 2nd, 2017 · 1 Comment

https://www.counterpunch.org/2017/12/01/a-president-made-for-a-zombie-apocalypse-world/ Yes, he’s the Dumbfounding Father of twenty-first-century America and that’s distracting, but he’s also the ultimate symptom of the unfounding of this nation, of the moment when — to slightly adapt a Cole Porter line — Plymouth Rock finally landed on us. We have still failed to ‘know what hit us’ with Trump. It […]
