We were in (three) years gone by formally ambivalent to Bernie’s talk of revolution, tut-tutting his cooptation of the term as at best ‘social democratic’ tinkering, but now (we predicted it) the term is bouncing back and we can talk quite radically of ‘Our Revolution’, how our terminology…
Bernie is now changing gears and his ‘Our Revolution’ seems to be getting backburnered as he attempts to cope with the magpie centrists pilfering tidbits of his 2016 toybasket. Actually the slogan is handy and falls in our lap as crypto-lenininst-1848-ish neo-dulterated revolutionism, Our slogan, finally…great work, Bernie…
R48G: Our Revolution: confronting the American fascist monstrosity in the climate emergency
September 25th, 2016 ·
The idea of a new political party is nice, cute, but one more just now is superfluous while what is needed is a movement of movements to move as much as possible into the climate emergency
situation. But I think that the idea of a virtual neo-communist movement should proceed on the sidelines, ready to move to the forefront, but short of that a constant expose of both established and pseudo-activist movements. The public, once they grasp the situation, will begin to converge away from the current false consensus. Consider 350.org: what else do we have. It is doing a lot a good. But we need to continue from the sidelines to remind such groups they will fail and be ready when the real rage/despair readies a new generation to revolt.
We confront a criminal mafia running the US, predating across a whole planet. There nexus is controlled by a deep state, democracy is an illusion, imperialism is wreaking havoc, the war on terror is a false flag construct, the political system has been essentially taken over by the right, the list is
grotesque. We must proceed beside emergency actions NOW to deal with emergency to see how
they’re at best partial success demands a larger comprehensive revolutionary solution.
