The Last Revolution: Postcapitalist Futures …//ver_3_29_22

The_Last_Revolution_Postcapitalist_ Futures_ver_3_29_22

Dated for Tues/29…the appendices are proving a bit rough, simply take the core text alone in a short book?

The legacy of Marx/Engels attempted to claim a science and yet these claims are dubious and hand the critics an easy victory. Our suggestion here is to consider a simple outline and then study the empirical basis of economic and multiple other histories in a factual mode. The ‘stages of production’ theory isn’t a viable construct: best to do without it. Along with that is the Marxist confusion over Darwinism, that is, the theory of natural selection. The left might have led the way to exposing this ideological fixture of capitalist domination of science. Instead, the right in its intelligent design movement has led the way toward applying the many, mostly suppressed scientific critics of Darwinism. The design argument seems to terrify figures like Dawkins and his cult and the abuse of natural selection theory to contradict design simply discredits biologists. The debate over design simply doesn’t yield grounds for theological inferences and the attempt to use the suggestions of design to promote traditional theology have failed leaving the useful commentary on Darwinism in place. Challenging Darwin in public in academic and scientific circles is still so taboo that the few can screw up their courage to defy the cancel culture that reigns, to the disgrace of science, and academic bastions.
Good riddance to historical materialism and dialectical materialism. Since Marxists won’t listen we need to create a new kind of left, and none too soon. Our construct or algebra of movements, the Red Fortyeight Group is one suggestion.

Our idea of ‘virtual revolution’ has served its purpose and we must soon ask if a real movement is possible. I invite Marxists to molt, effective immediately, and create a new movement. The public simply won’t listen to Marxism anymore in any case

The appendices are actually optional add-ons, and a short version of the main text alone may be the way to go.

We are running out of time to deal with climate change and the danger is compounded by the inability of the politicians to show any leadership. The grip of the ‘capitalist bourgeoisie’ is dangerously crypto-totalitarian.
