Lost opportunities…a record of failure

Source: Lost opportunity…


We have repeatedly suggested that the stance of the left has shifted now: Marx in his era was very reluctant to get specific about what would replace capitalism: the unpredictable future and the creation of models in the abstract was grounds for giving only the most general indications…a good example of unpredictable futures is the way ecological concerns have come to the fore and/or the displaced position of the working class has made working class revolution problematical.

We can thus critique the liberal realm but the degenerate kleptocracy and nauseating aftermath of bolshevism in degenerates like Putin is hardly the future, old Dugin, that igor to frankenstien, notwithstanding…
Russia never seems to get lucky: it is a key member of the modern system yet missed most of the modern transition, democracy, moved desperately into bolshevism making an even greater mess, and now is beset with the grotesque aftermath of that, preying on the world system with svengali aspirations to a postliberal postmodern postcivilization form of near barbarism. How resolve the russian riddle. In the nonce, the Putins would resolve the american riddle with injections of Trump formations.
The conspiracy is pursued further at The Gurdjieff Con and there is a hidden anti-democratic spiritual fascism stalking the world’s democracies…
