The universal and/or the working class

April 7th, 2018 · No Comments

The age of trump should be a reminder that the working class is (no longer, if it ever was) a revolutionary class. We have suggested a conceptual trick and also a useful exploration by replacing the ideological focus on the working class with a new foundation based on the universal class.

an idea of the universal, not just the working class…//Thinking Clearly about the White Working Class | Michael D. Yates | Monthly Review

March 22nd, 2018 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=universal+working+class This essay at Monthly Review is a cogent analysis of the question of the (white) working class in the US. As noted, the white working class in the US is simply not a revolutionary class, and in general we have attempted here in our approach to the question of a neo-communism to consider a […]

Universal and working class

February 6th, 2018 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=universal+working+class There is a lot of material on this question here, and much of the discussion if fluid and open to more concrete realization. But the idea of the universal is a useful tool of analysis and can be used over and above considerations of the working class.

Universal versus working class…

October 21st, 2017 · No Comments

One of the reasons we changed the terminology of our (socialist/communist) ‘Red Forty-eight Group’ from working class to universal class was to obviate precisely the difficulty we see now in discussions of the Women’s March: the splintering of focus between issue activisms and a more general leftist perspective, or set of perspectives. The universal class […]

http://darwiniana.com/?s=universal+working+class Why is the left fixated on the working class? Why favor one class over another? Is the working class really revolutionary? We have tried to address these issues with a new kind of multitasking approach emphasizing the ‘universal class’, which is both a universal set (set theory) of all classes and/or a new class […]

from working class to universal class…//How Labor Scholars Missed the Trump Revolt – The Chronicle of Higher Education

September 6th, 2017 · No Comments

A postmarxist left might consider its stance on working class emphasis almost dated and move to a larger conception.
