Institutions: Organizational Fetishes vs. Organizational Focus

Posted 1st December 2011 at 02:53 by Die Neue Zeit

There's organizational fetishism, and then there's organizational focus. This may evoke a kind of secular evangelism on the subject, but without organizational focus, one will never see a revolutionary period for the working class.

Organizational focus demands a synthesis of the best elements each lesser "form" has to offer:

- Immediate trade unions were formed in opposition to craft unions, organizing active skilled and unskilled workers on the basis of...

The Merger Formula: Ideology on Why Real Parties are Real Movements and Vice Versa



The previous blog, Real Parties as Real Movements and Vice Versa, explained the institutional basis for the title. This unoriginal yet long-overdue blog provides the ideological basis.

Class-Strugglist Democracy and the Demarchic Commonwealth

Posted 28th August 2010 at 02:52 by Die Neue Zeit

Class-Strugglist Democracy and the Demarchic Commonwealth
