Joseph writes: 'I'm hard-pressed to believe it [abolition] was much more than that [propaganda].' But slavery was abolished. So it wasn't just propaganda. Is slavery such an incidental to you that you don't mind if it is or is not abolished? Joseph asks: 'Do you think that ...

Chris C. writes: " his (their) judgments were about not about phenomena in and of themselves, but rather what potentially advanced or blocked the changes he (they) wanted to politically pursue" I wonder if this way of putting it introduces too great a distinction between objective circumstance and subjective goal. If the ...

Chris: they had no problem siding with larger nations against smaller ones if they thought the former were progressive (which ironically usually meant more capitalist) and the latter backward. [WS:] I have no interest in hagiography - but the position itself warrants some thought (whether or not it was actually proposed by ...

P.S. On Marx on the American Civil War: I think that, while I remain sympathetic to the Union side in the American Civil War, history shows that crushing slavery in the American South, the degree to which it did not lead simply to the strengthening of the American workers' movement ...

i could only speak for me on a hypothetical but, well, did you read the great Iranian women and feminism debate? There you go, my policy in action. See also: Eric's recent post about trying to avoid the patronizing position that these other people can't possibly have a politics ...

There isn't a problem. My point waaaay back when was that you certainly could use Marx to justify support for the war in Afghanistan if you wanted to, no more, no less. ----- Original Message ---- From: James Heartfield <Heartfield at blueyonder.co.uk> Not really seeing a problem here. Marx and ...

Well yeah, Bakunin's Judeophobia is well-known and creepy. But that's not terribly relevant. Marx of course said similar things about Jews, even though he wasn't quite so conspiratorial about it. God I'm tired. ----- Original Message ---- From: Mike Beggs <mikejbeggs at gmail.com> Also that Marx was ...
