151 [lbo-talk] Platypus: what we are, what we do, and why -- rank: 773
I'll go with "a course of action is good or bad according as the results are good or bad", but there are two problems with it: you don't know until it's all over and it's rare that results aren't awfully mixed. The North was right in ...

154 [lbo-talk] Platypus: what we are, what we do, and why -- rank: 773
I don't mean to go out on a limb here, but I think the North's victory in the Civil War was a fine thing. But there is still a parallel of a sort. If you have some monochromatic, ahistorical opposition to all big bad capitalist governments, I don't ...

I didn't say the Platypus goal was to "subsume" anything. I was thinking of the distinction Marx made between formal subsumption and real subsumption.

At what point does "imperialism" become a semantic issue? If a region has different socioeconomic interests from the rest of a nation but is in a relatively powerless position within the national government but the national government enforces the interests of the different powerful region, how does this differ from external ...

So would you oppose the French Revolution, because it featured the triumph of the bourgeoisie, our sworn class enemy? Even take a "not a Civil War," but a classic case of imperialist aggression viewpoint: This argument doesn't make sense, because 2010 isn't 1865. On Thu, Apr 8, 2010 at ...
