Jacobin: Britain’s Third King Charles Should Be Its Last – 1848+: The End(s) of History

The historical background of the English Civil War is apt here and to be a third Charles in the wake of that history might leave a royalist queasy, fearful for the head that bears the crown. The English Civil War was one of the greatest gestation moments of modern democracy and all sorts of gremlins appeared out of the woodwork, viz. the Diggers, etc…
And yet that revolution passed into chaotifications, and in the end the sad tale ends in the Restoration which is counterrevolution triumphant, given only the ambiguous emergence of Parliament as a sort of queer monstrosity.
I was watching the movie version of Tale of Two Cities, not exactly Dickens’ finest but it gives an unwitting portrait of the outcome of the Restoration period: the contrast of the conservative English and the fiery French revolutionaries. A fairly exact account of the ghosts that haunt the Brit kings, and now poor Charles the Third, keelhauled between a Charles the First and the Second…Egad…
The British monarchy is haunted by such images and suffers the curse of revolutionary reaction and failure in the endphase of the great Civil War.

The latest British monarch will be the first King Charles since the Stuart dynasty of the 17th century. The revolutionary struggle against the Stuarts gave birth to a radical democratic tradition —…

The Last Revolution: Postcapitalist Futures…//9_1_22

The_Last_Revolution_Postcapitalist Futures_ ED2_9_1_22

Notes/Intro’s to various versions…: (The Amazon paperback and Kindle versions have fallen behind, wait if interested…: stick with PDF)

I just reread D. Valentine’s The CIA as Organized Crime (cited in text). A book to give one pause. A totalitarian state of affairs already exists in the way the public is completely in the dark about what is going on and the way covert action has inserted itself into ‘deep state’ mode.

——

The focus of The Last Revolution is on revolution, and yet it can be taken as a virtual model to orient thinking disorganized by piecemeal reformist thinking. The ‘left’ is forced to consider each issue as in some fashion a new movement, a treadmill of endless effort going nowhere.

The Marxist world is stuck forever in the Darwinian mindset that haunts science and academia. If only left could have exposed the Darwin fallacies at the start, or at least much sooner. Sadly, it is impossible to communicate with Marxists on Darwinism, the JFK assassination, or the 9/11 false flag operation. Marxists have sealed their own fate and threaten to take down the whole left with them.

Jacobin has just published an article defending Marxism as science. After a year of sending links to my book they should know better than to embarrass a leftist writer by printing old-fashioned nonsense. The only people left that believe Marxism is scientific are Marxists, everyone else simply shakes their head. Time to just stop, and print some of the critics on the left. Marxism peddled as science has no future.

The Last Revolution has a comprehensive critique of this view, but of course that is canceled as propaganda is dredged up to evidently keep the Marx faithful confused….

Civil Wars, revolution, counterrevolution

This is a post to marxmail: a book called: What are you willing to do? James Meek

this book and this reviewer asks what “our side” would be willing to do if (when?) the right wing steals the next election …

We have commented on this before but further discussion in the context of The Last Revolution would be useful, tommorrow.
We think of the dialectic as ‘active’/ ‘passive’/ ‘reconciling’ or ‘triadic resolution’ (or ABC )
but there are six versions, permuting the letters (BAC, CAB..): one is BAC: ‘passive’/ ‘active’/ resolution, etc…
We are critics of dialectic here but anyway the point is that we think, active revolution, passive counterrevolution, resolution.
Wary of the above (we should restate it differently), the point is that counterrevolution can ignite revolution to resolution.
??? Since we are critics of dialectic here, but …you never know with silly putty.

The point is a rising suspicion that the paralyzed left has created a vacuum filled on the right by counterrevolution which
can only lead to a revolution against that. Not very logical but such is dialectic. It seems to be actually happening.

Again the point is that revolution is being ignited by the right and this will provoke revolution on the left…??
If we lose the right to vote a context of de facto civil war arises at once.

Be sure to get my book, which despite its ‘virtual revolution’ theme might prove useful in the coming revolution which can end in the
hands of hopeless idiots.

The inability of science to correct its flawed Darwinism with a simple is an almost baffling blunder: we cannot be sure scientists (the hard sciences) beyond various specialties are really ‘with it’ and/or able to perceive ideological bias.

Marxists might study the chapter on the modern transition in World History and the Eonic Effect: the immense complexity of innovations is almost staggering. And yet Marxists wish to repelace all of that with a brittle ‘materialism’ that banishes all idealist thought, never discusses religion, art, philosophic history, facts/values, ethics, etc, etc… We can see the result in the sterile world of Bolshevism and its dogmatic reductionism, and swift domination by psychopaths.
