    In Brazil I'd say most people don't even think about it. Those who do think a little a bit about it probably mostly believe "socialism" to be some kind of vaguely social democratic system while...

    Self proclaimed social democrats are hardly the only people that fit that description. Most of the so called "far left" parties either support bourgeois wars or trying to run the bourgeois state...

    Communists should always defend the working class' interests in strikes and other struggles. However, the idea that "the left" is something worth uniting is the mother of all kinds of anti-working...

    To make a long story short (after which please read the long version on the text Devrim posted), most left communists regard Trotsky as an authentic revolutionary whose role on the Russian revolution...

    Exactly. I'm not an expert on it but so correct me if I'm wrong, but frequently when PT is discussed there are people coming from one end where basically all it means is that racism, sexism and other...

    Maybe this notion has something to do with the kurdish nationalists' enthusiasm for Bookchin.

    Actually I was just playing with you there. But it turned out I was accidentally right in a weird way. It's one thing to not be bogged down in dictionary definitions, it's a different thing to try...

    I agree with Luis Henrique and we're both Portuguese speakers. Maybe our understanding of the word "privilege" has something to do with it. Would someone into privilege theory care to clarify exactly...

    The question is: capitalism is better than what? Feudalism? "Communism"?
    Also, when and where?
    The actual formulation doesn't make a lot of sense, let alone any possible answer for it.

    A bunch of trotskyists became right wingers, so what? Leftists of all kinds became right wingers of all kinds. It may not be the case in the US, but in Latin American and European Politics there are...

    Gangsters aren't proletarian at all, lumpen or otherwise. They exploit other people's work. A point could be made about small time criminals who work for them. But organized crime is a capitalist...

    Yes, people unconcerned with their own well being are more capable of killing other people, that's obvious.
    I just don't see how that has anything to do with the emancipation of workers. Suicide...

    Indeed, it doesn't interfere at all with marxists building a party. But that's not what I meant. I said it seems funny to me that some anarchists are against the party for being authoritarian,...

    I find this glorification of the super-revolutionary who's a different, better kind of person to ordinary folk not only moralistic but also useless in that it bans proletarian politics into a ghetto,...

    From personal experience I would say many anarchists have more of a problem with the word than with the actual definition of the state used by (the good) marxists. I have seen anarchists using the...

    So the "capitalists" appeared in 1953? How did it happen exactly and how does the mode of production in eastern Europe in, say, 1960 differs from what they had in, say, 1950? What exactly happened in...

    To make a long story short, historical materialism is Marxism while dialectical materialism is the Stalinist theory of everything.

    How come you criticize Henry Ford or the Rockefellers, not to mention a fellow Revleft user and not Mussolini or Goebbels?
    This is an outrage!

    DI'm a worker in a third world country and I find this whole notion absurd and politically poisonous in that it divides the class even further and distracts it from the real issue.

    Yes. But it depends. If it's answering claims that sex work is necessarily worse than other types of work, or that sex work is equivalent to rape - I've seen both points being made a few times - than...
