The_Last_Revolution_Postcapitalist_ Futures_version_5_22_22

Models of economy beyond capitalism were beyond the capacity of the older left/marxists but the task is not so hard if you can get beyond the confusions amid clarifications of Marx et al. This version also gets around to discussing something mentioned was back: the lower indifference level in the DMNC model beyond the high level control system of market neo-communism: the idea is that below a certain level the higher-level control system of (socialist) markets/planning need not apply and can be, well, laissez-faire (to recycle ironically that detested term, here is a new sense. The state cannot control a whole system, and it dosesn’t need to so so to create a viable socialism.

The world of Sanders has inspired many, but his usage of the term Our Revolution to refer to socialism really meaning social democracy has done harm, he is hardly alone. And the problem is easy to correct. Stop double talk about socialism: if you use the term you mean to refer to a revolutionary transition. Sanders is a failure and it resent his posh Senate retreat zone while I remain in the limbo of capitalist pseudo-society. He was no working-class revolutionary.

We are in the last decade(s) for real change that can prevent disaster. Since the left of the last generation has accomplished almost nothing, I mean suggest a look at the text here…Failure on climate seemed inconceivable once: surely the US could respond to the crisis. But in seventy years it has done almost nothing and now the far right is making the situation even worse. We can’t wait for the off-chance of a Congress/Senate that can manage a Green New Deal.

Lots of changes in various parts of the book.

Extremism on the abortion front…

Backing women with their backs to the wall is a provocative and dangerous act on the right, and utterly ill-advised: what can’t really happen(moving into the past) is being made to pass by forcing the issue on a majority. The results, along with many other factors, will generate a revolutionary option that could tear the whole politics into civil strife. And the whole legacy here will end by tearing apart the Catholic Church along with the Christian religion itself.
The larger picture is that a settled ‘democracy’ no longer has a higher court, and is a rogue state.
In a general mix of calamities, capitalist depradations, imperialism, ecological calamity, and racist degeneration a whole state is under check with a next move moving into social insurrection.

Reproductive rights supporters vowed to fight against the ban that begins at fertilization and, like legislation in Texas, “creates a bounty-hunting scheme” for enforcement.
