beyond leninism…revolution means regime change with an international…/Both the Commune and Revolution

September 18th, 2018 · No Comments

This is interesting thinking but we persist in our large-scale approach. At the same time our model of ‘democratic market neo-communism’ with its three sectors allows any number of scaled solutions/experiments such as we see here. It’s all aboard in our sense.

We would need to rethink the revolutionary option itself in a post-leninist upgrade. In the US leninism can never gain a foothold. Source: The DSA, Julia Salazar and the future of the left | Louis Proyect: The Unrepentant Marxist

Bypassing the ‘bourgeois’ revolution

The strategy of neo-communism: trotsky and the russian fumbled balls… June 30th, 2018 · At the risk of misunderstanding both trotsky and the russian revolution we might note the resemblance of trotsky’s perspective and our own: the idea of the need for a bourgeois democratic revolution to precede the passage to socialism was rejected by […]

At the point politicians and capitalists actually climate catastrophe we confront ‘revolutionary action’ as last resort?

September 8th, 2018 · No Comments

The question of revolution at this point is not so much a socialist question as an ecological one. At the point of climate catastrophe, amazingly abetted by not just trump but the capitalist powers that be we confront a situation where our politicians are simply criminals and all too obviously beyond reason of any kind.

 The revolutionary option all that’s left?

September 7th, 2018 · No Comments

We can’t draw any simple conclusions about the issue of revolution. For a conservative magazine to scotch socialist revolution is simply propaganda. The question won’t go away precisely because these conservative evaluations are moving with insidious indirection to undermine what is really a social democratic trend appropriating the term ‘socialism’, a tactic all too evident […]

Revolution, punctuated equilibrium?

September 5th, 2018 · No Comments

R48G: punctuated equilibrium, the fallacy of theory and revolutionary free agency… May 22nd, 2017 · The idea of punctuated equilibrium is ‘still another theory’ and won’t work as hoped because it specifies a dynamical process whose character remains ambiguous. It is much better to use our eonic model where we can descriptively perceive ‘punctuated events’ […]

Evolutionary/revolutionary

September 5th, 2018 · No Comments

Beyond the evolutionary/revolutionary divide… February 22nd, 2018 · 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 […]

As the previous post makes obvious: almost all the great advances of civilization are correlated with the eonic sequence, although that remains mysterious. A revolutionary left must consider this point and be wary of the dangers of social reconstruction based on limited perspectives of the nature of history Nothing in world history makes sense without […]

The eonic model is a far better way to analyze the history of science: we can see that the rise of advanced civilization in sumer shows the jumpstarting of ‘science’ in three beats or transitions.

The left haunted by its distortion of revolutionary simplicity…

September 1st, 2018 · No Comments

The comparison of a communist to the american revolution flies in the face of the idea of ‘bourgeois’ revolution but the analog is still useful in a very general sense: find a concrete version of a system that is ‘democracy, i.e. socialist’, carry it out and get the job done. The american rebs actually succeeded […]

Creeping revolution (with a push from Donald Not The Duck?)

August 29th, 2018 · No Comments

The ideas of socialism are stirring once again and ideas of revolution can’t be far behind. We may have created a mythology of revolution: the russian revolution is misleading, and the factor of ‘bourgeois’ revolution haunts the american case.
