If someone identifies as a facist I hate them. Even if they are not well versed in economic theory or believe only a small percentage of what their movement espouses.
Well Islam espouses horrific shit and so does christianity, however Islam is clearly the most prevalent religious force killing people for ideology, obviously imperialism stunting third world economies and such leads young poor people to join. This does not mean I can not hate those men. I hate hitler, He was living in poverty in a climate of anti semitism, do you want to start telling me how jewish people have backwards views too?
Hi Devrim. Was wondering if you could critique my political positions?
The role of the party is to intervene in the class struggle and provide revolutionary perspectives. In the event of a revolutionary situation the party should lead the insurrection but should not substitute itself for the independent organs of class rule which arise
Parliament: MP's should only accept a workers wage and be subject to recall
Unions: class collaborationist
Nat Lib: Proletarian Internationalism is only possible on the basis of equality between nations. However we should distinguish between ideological driven Nat Lib i.e Scotland, and actual national oppression i.e Palestine
Peasantry/PB: post-revolution we should attempt to merge all non-exploitative classes with the proletariat by demonstrating the superiority of collective ownership
Bourgeois Democracy: Should be fought for whenever workers revolution is not yet a possibility
Hello again Devrim. Was wondering if you could help me regarding Bordiga? Ive read conflicting claims regarding his views of party dictatorship and soviet democracy. He seems to suggest that he supports party dictatorship AND soviet democracy but Im not sure if ive interpreted this correctly because surely any soviet where only one party could run would be rendered impotent? Other conflicting claims include Bordiga viewing the Soviets useful only insofar as they enabled the Bolsheviks to get to power. What exactly is his position regarding the role of the party, the soviets and the relationship between them in a proleterian dictatorship?
Also, I had a thought the other day. I think one of the problems is how we conceive of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat (I think in this day and age 'Workers democracy' would be a better term). I think instead of viewing it as something to be constructed, i.e an end in itself, we should view it as a particular PERIOD
1. I understand that Italy has perhaps been the most prominent centre of left comm activity from 1945 onwards, how true is this? Do any other countries come close? At what period did the left comms have the largest amount of organised militants? Is the amount of left comm militants increasing or decreasing?
2. Does most European countries have an organised left comm organisation, can you give an example of such organisations and perhaps some figures or estimates on how many militants they possess in a given country?
3. How large is the left comm prescence in the UK in particular? What organisations exist and how many members are involved? What are they currently doing to intervene in the class struggle?
I realise I have asked an awful lot here and I apologise if it is too much. Sadly I cant offer much in return apart from my entetnal gratitude. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
