    Yes, "civil war with the peasantry" was used as a threat by Bukharin. The industrialisation plans of both the Joint Opposition and Stalin would, according to Bukharin, lead to a break-up of the peasant-worker alliance (the smychka) and thus provoke a civil war with the peasants. (See Bukharin and the Bolshevik Revolution by S. F. Cohen)

    Here's your letter. The website will move soon to another template. It will feature letters more clearly on the frontpage.

    Was the book "The Road to Power" by Kautsky the book about the mass party?

    Comrade, care to condense your post about the platform into a letter? We could do the translation.

    Ok, thanks. By the way, is the book "The Class Struggle (Erfurt Program)" a good read?

    Thank you.

    Also, as a new person to Marxism, I have a question. What's the difference between the mass party that groups like the IMT and people like Karl Kautsky advocate, and the Leninist party?

    Could you except my join request for the Revolutionary Marxist" group?

    Almost wish I hadn't seen that, haha. I generally like rabble, but the discussion forum doesn't tend to bring out the best of it.

    I might look into it. I've made my thoughts pretty clear on GIS already, and judging from that first page it's kinda lacking in materialist analysis, but whatever.

  • Signature
    "A new centrist project does not have to repeat these mistakes. Nobody in this topic is advocating a carbon copy of the Second International (which again was only partly centrist)." (Tjis, class-struggle anarchist)

    "A centrist strategy is based on patience, and building a movement or party or party-movement through deploying various instruments, which I think should include: workplace organising, housing struggles [...] and social services [...] and a range of other activities such as sports and culture. These are recruitment and retention tools that allow for a platform for political education." (Tim Cornelis, left-communist)

January 25 marked the ushering in of what is hoped to be the world’s first genuine, but non-dictatorship of the proletariat, ‘workers’ government’ since the Popular Front in Spain. However, January 25 also marked the ushering in of what the inter-war social democracy hoped to be the ‘labour revolution’.

Indeed, ever since discussions on ‘workers’ governments’ resurfaced, I can’t help but think why criticisms of this Comintern framework, such as those found in the Weekly Worker, did...

The original Platform text of the Dutch-based Communist Platform has been released by comrades in other threads as well as in the Communist Platform, Revolutionary Marxists, and Orthodox Marxism groups. A comradely critique of the full original text follows:

Critique of “Workers Control” and More: On Management Principles and Frameworks

“No one disputes the importance of keeping reliable records but Lenin's identification of workers' control in a 'workers' state', with the function of accountancy (i.e. checking the implementation of decisions taken by others) is extremely revealing. Nowhere in Lenin's writings is workers' control ever equated with fundamental decision-taking (i.e. with the initiation of decisions) relating to production...

Previous blog:

Sometimes blogs can be more conducive to agitation than education. The previous blog was educative, and part of a broader programmatic framework. This one, posted elsewhere online as a blog comment or a letter, aims to be agitative.


Some economically radical demands are more important than others, among them the proposals of left economists Hyman Minsky and Rudolf Meidner, and I feel these...

Demands, State Power, Political Struggle, and Economic Illusions

“At the heart of the problem was the Left's often uncritical embrace of one of the most oppressive, disempowering and alienating institutions that most working-class people ever have the misfortune to interact with in their lives: the modern state. At some point, the Left dropped its former aim of encouraging the ‘self-emancipation’ of working people, and replaced it with an aim that to most people seems like its opposite:...
