    I do remember reading some stuff by the CPGB(PCC) on Lenin a few years back, would you organise on a bolshevik unification , so all the different sects will be united into one dem cen party? Also, I can't tell about SA , I saw them out on a demo the other day, perhaps they made the same turn as SPEW???

    Wait socialist appeal work in the greens now, can I see a source for that this is big news to me. I think the tactic you mentioned was carried out by a few groups here in the UK, the International Marxist Group, Labour Party Marxists, The Club, WRP etc where they did 'liquidise' themselves into Labour. I thought you now sympathised with CPGB(PCC) , AFAIK they favour uniting the revolutionary left not working in the main soc dem parties, if that is what you meant by existing workers movement, sorrry if it wasn't.

    Oh and if you think the issue is with being outside, what do you think of the IMT approach, I'm not gonna lie, I'm really starting to lean towards the IMT now

    Have you read The Socialist article on Corbyn? It actually outline a pretty good plan for what happens with Corbyn IMHO. http://www.socialistparty.org.uk/iss...age-is-popular . Also thanks for that link I'll have a look through it. Also AFAIK the CWI sections are in Die Linke and Syriza but I could be wrong, I'm only a CWI sympathiser not a member

    well really I've been looking at the different strands of entryism. I looked through some CWI stuff but I couldn't tell if they wanted to do the classic entryism with the eventual breakaway or turn Labour, Die Linke etc into the Leninist vanguard party. Could you link me to the essays on the french turn, as I looked through on marxist internet archive and couldn't tell if I was looking at the right works. Thanks in advance comrade

    Hey Q, do you know some good links on the theory of entryism, I ask this as you seem to be the only active former CWI person who might actually respond properly :P

    There were some pretty high level concepts and perspectives raised by those responding to the thread. That demonstrates that the thread was beyond being categorized as Learning.

    I wanted to delete the post and just send you a message but couldn't delete it. But to restate:

    How is the assertion that world war is just as much a driver of world history as class struggle? It theoretical as an issue on how world war is viewed in relation to world history and the class struggle. What's mostly "learning" rather than theoretical about it?

A post where I shortly explain what 'orthodox' Marxism is all about.

There are a few main tenets, although it isn't a very monolithic current in itself. The latter precisely because of the strong emphasis on democratic debate and, as such, the right to disagree.

So, as you may have gathered, although this wasn't announced broadly in the English part of the forum, I have left the CWI as per April 30 of this year, together with another comrade, in order to join a few other comrades in publically launching the Communist Platform, with its magazine Kompas.

To some comrades, this might come as a surprise, after all I joined the CWI in late 2005. Others might find it less surprising, given the political trajectory I was developing into - from Trotskyism...

Some time since I gave an update on my political work, although not much has been worthy of reporting.

After a few months of coming together in local branch meetings of the SP, the subject of elections came up. Next year there'll be local elections and our branch got permission from the national party to participate again, for the second time. Our branch currently has one member in the council (out of 37).

After considering the pros and cons I've decided to put myself up...
