don’t corrupt ecological socialism with marx’s errors and monopoly of bad theory…has noone heard of the Romantic movement?…//What Karl Marx has to say about today’s environmental problems

This quote shows directly that Marx’s thinking had a near-ecological aspect. But in the end marxism has no real ecological perspective. And conclusion is not to try and integrate ecology into marxism. The result will backfire because ecologial thinking integrated with the fallacies of marx’s theories will be a hopeless mess.
The left needs to leave hopeless case marxists behind, take a few good quotes from his works and start over from scratch….

Has noone heard of the Romantic movement? An immense resource in counterpoint to/with the Enlightenment is a part of modernity. We don’t need the dead hand of marxists to monopolize ecological thinking…

…all progress in capitalistic agriculture is a progress in the art, not only of robbing the labourer, but of robbing the soil; all progress in increasing the fertility of the soil for a given time, is a progress towards ruining the lasting sources of that fertility.– Karl Marx, Capital vol 1

Sanders, lackey of the washington hyaenas, with his pseudo-socialist hard-on, shows his true colors on Venezuela…

https://redfortyeight.com/?s=sanders+venezuela

How eloquent, Mr. Sanders…The sins of Maduro are as nothing compared to the crimes of the right and the legacy of the US in Latin America. We must fear that a Pinochet style massacre will occur if Venezuela succumbs.

After all the fine works on socialism you have nothing but cheasy liberal sermonizing  confronted with a real attempt to create socialism, however confused, but no more confused than you and the damage you do to people at the brink.

But most of all we see that, as we have said many times, Sanders invokes ‘revolution’ to coopt it, and socialism to coopt it. He wants an imperialist US to have a new FDR phase and in the process coopt the left…

If the US would simply try to help the creation of a real socialism (cf. our DMNC) it could redeem its criminal destruction of great experiment…

Sanders’ concern for the rule of law and rights is touching but in a revolution there is no country and therefore there are no rights. You might instead of liberal boilerplate sugget ways that a transitional set of rights could exist/co-exist with a revolution to make the transition to a socialist constitution, with rights. There is no right to counter-revolution in a Socialist system with a Commons to which all are entitled: anything else is plunder by neo-capitalists…

“The Maduro government in Venezuela has been waging a violent crackdown on Venezuelan civil society, violated the constitution by dissolving the National Assembly and was re-elected last year in an election that many observers said was fraudulent,” Sanders said in a statement. “Further, the economy is a disaster and millions are migrating.”

Sanders continued by saying the U.S. while “should support the rule of law, fair elections and self-determination for the Venezuelan people,” it must also “condemn the use of violence against unarmed protesters and the suppression of dissent” in the country.
