    I really enjoyed it. It does a great job dealing with different movements and political developments, such as the "Arguments" group, Camus's debates with Sartre, the development of Heideggarian Marxism, Jean-Paul Sartre's political development, the influence of Alexander Kojeve's lectures on Hegel (which actually convinced me to buy "The Phenomenology of Spirt"), and a lot more.

    Have you ever read "Existential Marxism in Postwar France" by Mark Poster? I just finished it, and I think you would like it.

    I agree. Although I still remain a Sartrean Existentialist to a degree, I think Camus makes good points about the absurdity of the world, and he does make fair points against Sartre. Although I do disagree with his Syndicalist politics, I am enjoying Camus's work, "The Rebel", and I do plan on buying "The Stranger".

    What's your opinion on Albert Camus?
  5. View Conversation
    It's a bit difficult to read, but it's quite interesting. I consider myself an existentialist at this point, so yeah.

    I just started reading "Being and Nothingness".

    Once again, thank you.

    Also, sorry to bug you again, but the description for the group also mentioned a "Revolutonary Democratic Rally". By sound of it, I'm guessing it has something to do with the '68 uprising, but what is it exactly?

    Okay, thanks.

    I noticed in the description of the "Existentialist Marxist" group that it mentions a party called the Proletarian Left. What's the deal with them?

On the Existentialism of Political Vanguardism

by JPSartre12 on 7th January 2014 at 03:06
Comrades, despite the fact that I have not been a particularly active poster in the recent weeks, I have devoted a good deal of time to reading what has been marked on the home page. I think it is high time that I make another blog post explaining my thoughts in relation to what I have read, seen, and discussed (both on Revleft and off).

I have spent less time thinking about the dogmatic politics of vanguardism and more about the metaphysic implications of the collective-individual

On the Transitional Period, and the Initiation of Planning

by JPSartre12 on 16th August 2013 at 17:28
Harris, Kiernan, and Miliband’s Dictionary of Marxist Thought, Second Edition has an extensive passage on both the “dictatorship of the proletariat” and the “transition to socialism”. At one point, they describe the latter as following:

“The Marxist concept of socialist revolution implies that there must be a period of transition from capitalism to socialism. In contrast to bourgeois revolution which is an overthrow of the political power of the aristocracy at the end of a long process

On "Socialist" Co-Operatives, and the State's "Withering Away"

by JPSartre12 on 4th August 2013 at 20:00
I have had some interesting conversations with some of my fellow comrades - both on revleft and off - regarding the nature of co-operative businesses, and the potential for their utilization as a method of transforming the capitalist mode of production into a socialist one. There have been several interesting conversations.

Of course, no vanguardist State is going to be able to use federal authority to create socialism, and no government administration is able to dictate the exact

On "State-Capital", and Fascist "Justice"

by JPSartre12 on 30th June 2013 at 16:34
Comrades, I've done some thinking recently and I believe it is time for another stream-of-consciousness blog post to help me order my thoughts.

As capitalism develops, and its markets innately trend towards monopolization, the State will begin to centralize its power as capital is increasingly concentrated; this is done (1) to allow for the easier management of the affairs of the bourgeoisie by a streamlined, singular "executive committee" (as in saving capital through effective

On Councilism, and Potentially Bourgeois Binaries

by JPSartre12 on 19th May 2013 at 21:54
Comrades, I have done some thinking recently, and I think that it is time that I write another revleft blog for me to organize my thoughts.

Over the past several months, I have become increasingly interested in Left communism, and the sort of ultra-Left critiques that it has given the Soviet Union, China, Marxist-Leninist and Leninist theory, etc. At the risk of sounding sectarian (indeed, sectarianism really bothers me, and I'd consider myself a pan-Leftist of sorts), I think that
