    What is "third world Caesarean socialism", exactly? It sounds like some Maoist-theory without the campy rhetoric.

  6. Not at all, and welcome to the group!

    (If you can read this message, since I can't post a Visitor Message on your profile or PM you)
  7. As per the Revolutionary Marxists usergrouo: Do i need to have read Kautsky to join? I've read plenty of Marx, Engels, and Lenin, and my business experiences and my former anarchist positions helped me see Marxism in a better light. I'd like to join the group. Since you moderate it I figured I'd ask

About Die Neue Zeit

Basic Information

About Die Neue Zeit
Eisenach, Gotha, & Erfurt
The revolutionary merger of Marxism with the worker-class movement, strategically and linguistically
Political Statement:
"It would be nearer the mark - though still wrong - to accuse me of being a [...] Kautskyite [...] In fact, overt [... ]Kautskyism would be a move to the left and an improvement in the politics of the [...] far left." (Mike Macnair)
Sympathizer re.: Communistisch Platform, WPA, and CPGB (PCC)
Organisation Contact Details:


"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)

Communitarian Populist Fronts: History and Current Events

by Die Neue Zeit on 31st January 2015 at 21:27
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

Comradely critique of the original Platform text (Communist Platform)

by Die Neue Zeit on 5th July 2014 at 14:18
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

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

Short Public Policy Demands: On Labour Markets, Taxation, Macroeconomy, and Ownership

by Die Neue Zeit on 8th June 2012 at 13:46
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

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:
