November 21st, 2017 · No Comments

http://www.fightbacknews.org/2017/11/20/october-revolution-and-some-lessons-struggle-socialism-us-available-pamphlet The question of the October revolution is confusing leftists: a consideration of a new socialist framework is needed for a future version that does not succumb to the problems of bolshevism: Not 1917 but the failure of 1848 seems more apt… https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=Two+Manifestos+version+2.pdf In another month it will be 2018 and the fixation on bolshevism […]

COP23: perhaps a revolution beyond capitalism is needed to get past mere talk on climate change!

November 21st, 2017 · No Comments

https://systemicdisorder.wordpress.com/2017/11/21/climate-summit-talk-not-action/ Of the above countries and regions, only India is rated by Climate Action Tracker, a consortium of three research organizations, as compatible with a goal of capping global warming at 2 degrees. Every other one has been found to be insufficient, with the United States joining Chile, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Ukraine as […]

Collapse? the crisis of climate change looms as a judgment on a whole ‘civilization’

November 21st, 2017 · No Comments

https://aeon.co/essays/what-the-idea-of-civilisational-collapse-says-about-history Challenges to the idea of collapse are entirely appropriate (but may not be right, we could collapse due to climate change any day now), but the Toynbean idea of a ‘civilization’ is not so useful: they are not dynamical entities. Our idea of ‘stream and sequence’ in WHEE is far more useful: https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public/XML_DARW_GC_Axial?preview=WHEE_5thed_pdf.pdf

Eliphas Levi, a socialist!

November 21st, 2017 · No Comments

https://scroll.in/article/857980/how-socialism-helped-seed-the-landscape-of-modern-religion The left needs a new way without exiting secularism to adopt a larger perspective on philosophy, religion, and post=religion: the dialectic should have been a tool to do that but it became crystallized around a post-Hegelian contraction. The dialectic was originally a mystical concept in such figures as Bohme. older post: R48G: religious futurism […]

The confusion over ‘western civilization’…

November 21st, 2017 · No Comments

Trump’s entry into foreign policy discussions here seems unpromising to say the least. But he makes a mistake that is not his alone and which pervades discourse, especially on the right. It is the fallacy of Western civilization. I have to recommend the perspective of the ‘macro effect’ from WHEE which sets aside the category […]

R48G: the empty rhetoric of democracy without an equality of the commons

November 21st, 2017 · No Comments

The idea of communism has been so discredited that we forget that in some form it is the only solution to the problem of fairness, and thence of democracy: our current system promotes the theme of democracy in order to covertly promote forms of inequality, and domination by the economics of capital. This are fairly […]

‘Insurrection’ as a state of mind

November 21st, 2017 · No Comments

archive: ‘insurrection’ as a state of mind June 3rd, 2017 · http://darwiniana.com/?s=revolution+r48g+insurrection The contemplation of ‘revolution’ is too controversial for even most on the left, but we have often made the point that ‘virtual’ revolution can be a stage of consideration almost more threatening to the powers that be than ‘revolutions’ which they consider to […]
