Does anyone think it would be of interest, or have a practical purpose, to write a critique on the origins, development and current activity of Marcyism and Marcy-derived groups? They seem to be largely activist organizations rather than theoretically driven (theory seems to begin and end with Marcy's work), with a membership equal to the other large leftist groups in the US. Yet they don't receive the kind of attention for observation or scrutiny that is characteristic of the other large Marxist-Leninist/various leftist groups. I ask because of the lack of coherent critique available and because, due to their very activist nature, they seem to recruit heavily (i.e. searching elements who live in geographic areas where such groups are present and active- leading skeptics of capitalism or sympathetic to socialist views into their orbit). Also because they can't be simply labeled as part of a specific counter-revolutionary tradition (its origins in Trotskyism is not particularly descriptive of Marcy's theories and organizations- it is certainly distinct), possibly giving it the appearance of being 'different' from the rest of the left.
Plus I'm particularly interested in the deviations from M-L due to changes in the USSR, changes in the foreign policy of one of the superpowers (or of regional imperialist states), etc. The reaction of M-L's to change (such as Marcy's; after supporting the violent suppression of Hungary in 1956, a new ideology of power structures and their 'proletarian anti imperialist' character evolves from the wreckage of Trotskyism's degenerated/deformed worker's states). The more extreme the deviation from traditional Stalinism or Trotskyism or Maoism, the easier it seems to trace back to the counter-revolutionary, ebbing tide of leftist ideology (since the working-class is in retreat, we must support colonial struggles of oppressed people, totalitarian regimes take power in former colonial countries, US imperialism gets involved, we support the totalitarian regimes = now the world is divided between proletarian people's states and US imperialism = theory of 'global class struggle').
Does anyone have experience encountering the WWP or PSL?
