    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?

    I think the "This isn't what I signed up for" thread should be closed.

    Here's a longer version of my letter cobbled up from prior posts and submissions, turned into a new blog:

    Communitarian Populist Fronts: History and Current Events

    In response to comradely demand, I anticipate it will be edited to be even longer, to take into account submissions in the near future.

    I might be able to make it, although I'd obviously like to have something local to me so I can get more involved on a regular basis. I hope they get back to me.

    ...If, however you attack the "intellectuals" who lead these movements in a way that opens up dialogue with that "intellectual" you can both undermine their authority, undermine their invincibility and most importantly the members of these parties would be much more willing to listen, firstly because it would be in the form of a dialogue, so they had an interest in the conversation but secondly and most importantly these members often have no great love or loyalty for these "intellectuals" they just don't know how to remove them. So, I would favour the paper opening up conversations with individual leaders of the other parties on doctrinal lines and arguing through our differences. Demonstrate in public the errors of the likes of Alex Callinicos, Harpal Brahr, Peter Taaffe.etc

    But yeh, if they're active in my area I will join.

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...

A short blog this time, giving reply to why we would need to build a "shell within the old order":

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...
