R48G: universal class versus (and/or) the working class…a janus-faced unity/polarity of class concepts…

November 11th, 2017 · No Comments

https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=Two+Manifestos+version+2.pdf http://darwiniana.com/?s=universal+working+class The focus on the working class has been the focus of the left since the era of 1848 and that is all well and good. But a larger perspective is also useful in order to completely transcend the idea of class altogether. Our idea of the ‘universal class’ is like automatic transmission: it […]

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 […]

R48G: working class, universal class…

October 8th, 2017 · No Comments

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 […]

There is a lot of talk about how Marx was really an ecosocialist (maybe?) but in the end of marxist legacy has not really had a true focus on the issue.

We have tried to create a new perspective on the classic legacy of the working class on many grounds. In fact this ‘heresy’ actually turns on itself and shows the ‘working class’ to a be ‘a’, if not ‘the'(a play on set theory!) universal class, if we can get past the cliche versions of the […]

 an exercise in dialectical ‘heresy’: reaching communism: working class or universal class…?

September 8th, 2017 · No Comments

We will comment one more time on this stupid remark by Cockburn. It is completely wrong to pit the conspiracy theory meme against the core marxist meme of the working class as some kind of historical dynamic…

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. The issue of the working class turned into an abstraction about actual people who throughout did not correspond to the marxist fiction, a point disastrously obvious at the start of the first world war.

July 27th, 2017 · No Comments

The socialist-style left (or lefts) have too often blunted their efforts with a misunderstanding of the issue of the working class. We have often cited a generalization of the working class as the ‘universal class’ and this can be useful ironically as an avenue to rediscovering a working class thrust to a future movement or […]

R48G: the working class as a subset, and spearhead, of the universal class

July 26th, 2017 · No Comments

http://www.truth-out.org/opinion/item/35841-let-s-get-serious-about-inequality-and-socialism This is a superb summary of the issues with ‘socialism’, but it falters on one point, the basis as a working class party. As many readers of this blog know we have moved to a more general approach: the Universal Class. Look at the activists of all stripes. Almost none of them are working […]

the universal class//Has “Working Class” Lost Its Meaning?

July 1st, 2017 · No Comments

In global terms the working class has its classic meaning but in the US it seems as if the concept and what it represents have dissolved into a fuzzy mix of several classes, with a grim realization that there is no revolutionary impulse here… We have suggested a re-focus on the ‘universal class’ and an […]

We are at such a crisis that we need to break out of the sterility and failures of the old (marxist strain) lefts with a new focus, framework and membership. The planetary crisis shows us one of the major aspects of this. The cliches of the marxist and the working class are out of date […]

Universal class, working class //Beyond Neoliberal Identity Politics

May 25th, 2017 · No Comments

The value of our emphasis on the ‘universal class’ is that we can use a set theory analogy to look at different subsets of that universal class and this includes not only the working class but all the various sectors of so-called identity politics. This approach is not obsessed with the working class focus (which […]
