What if both of the contending classes are already ruined?
Printer-friendly version

What if the counter revolution defeated the working class, and now the bourgeoisie has defeated itself?

Does that proposition even make sense? If so, might the ruin of the working class be reversed? Obviously the bourgeoisie still has political and economic power...

 

EDIT i think that, maybe, the working class would be unstoppable (i.e. communism inevitable) given that they freely associate.

Which was how I read Mattick, though clearly the bourgeoisie had a lot more life in them in 1936. Perhaps the moral is that in place of communist theory, we need, as the catalyst, communist solidarity.

of no value whatsoever?

eh i dunno, sorry i shouldn't post these inane questions... but, i've been thinking and jotting down some notes, and feel like i got to the following, as a principle for action in the death throes of capitalism:
 

  • pacifism is impossible while there is an oppressing class

 

does that make any sense?
