Rethinking marxism…

October 19th, 2017 · No Comments

This essay is part of the background to the previous post and is interesting enough but we must strongly challenge the claim this has been demonstrated by a theory of Marx.

R48G: ‘it’s the market economy, stupid’: confronting planetary destruction by capitalist ‘deadly weapon’….

October 18th, 2017 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/?s=R48G+revolution The question of revolution has been so distracted by its self-generated confusions that we are no longer able to put activist questions in right perspective.

Questioning history: the eonic model and an indirect approach to historical ‘theory’…

October 18th, 2017 · No Comments
