need for a critical marxism, the failure of ‘theory’ confronting praxis…//Marxism: A Method, Theory and Practice | Left Voice

This is a reasonable summary of marxism in a nutshell and also a good list of the problems of the whole ‘ism’ as we discover the need to upgrade the subject. We have endless posts here on all the issues but in a quick take our critique has a range of issues: we critique ‘theory’ … Continue reading need for a critical marxism, the failure of ‘theory’ confronting praxis…//Marxism: A Method, Theory and Practice | Left Voice

 The failure of marxism and the need for a new paradigm…

I am sorry to criticize Proyect but to suppress critical thinking at his Marxmail is a gross abuse. I could have provided a lot of food for thought and gotten some exposure of my ten plus books on … Source:  The failure of marxism and the need for a new paradigm… – 1848: The End(s) … Continue reading  The failure of marxism and the need for a new paradigm…

The labor theory of value is a failure, trying to reconcile it with ecology gets is fantasmogoric marxism as its most sophistical…

Marxists trying to explicate the labor theory with a dash of dialectics simply exude the dogmatic sophistry that pervades the whole of marxism.

The attempt here to apply it to ecology is a variant of medieval … Continue reading The labor theory of value is a failure, trying to reconcile it with ecology gets is fantasmogoric marxism as its most sophistical…

 Lost opportunities…a record of failure

 Rebooting a robust praxis freed from the domination of past failures…

Our idea of the Red Forty-eight Group is designed to deflect attention from the stale proliferation of leftist orgs that cannot get off the ground in any significant way.

 despite the aura of the Communist Manifesto, the marxist framework is dated, and flawed, and precipitated the failure of bolshevism…

Forcing comparison with Marx can backfire: he is at best an historical flag at this point: we need urgently to move on from marxism with a critique of Marx’s theories, disown bolshevism, decipher the issue of economics with compulsive marxist boilerplate, and in general see the way Marx’s theories have precipitated failure. A key issue … Continue reading  despite the aura of the Communist Manifesto, the marxist framework is dated, and flawed, and precipitated the failure of bolshevism…
