    Where can I find some writings of Marx about "barracks communism"?

    Post update: Implementation-wise, MOEs would be realized as part of a TWCS regime, but if you must suggest a "Chavez-like figure" or Zizek's Thatcher of the left, then I'll suggest something longer: initially by presidential decree (a la Venezuela), then by presidentially initiated "urgent" legislation (a la Ecuador).

    So I have three question dealing with Orthodox Marxism.

    1. Is the book "Revolutionary Strategy" by Mike Macnair any good?

    2. What is the Orthodox Marxist view of the Soviet Union "I. E, Degenerated worker's state, state capitalist, etc.).

    3. Are there any organizations in the United States that have Orthodox Marxist tendencies or ideas?

    That is all.

    Could you except my join request for the "Neo-Bakuninists" group? I'd appreciate it.

    Do you think that the party "Socialist Alternative" would be a good place to get involved in politics?

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...
