	Jon Beasley-Murray chastizes the (American) left because it does
not believe in revolution anymore -- no outside to oppression either. Is
revolution really a matter of faith? and Marxism, obligated to provide
hope? What about alternative theories? Gramsci's war of position I take
to be an alternative to traditional theories of revolution, and Laclau
and Mouffe -- two Brits -- deny that there is an outside or alternative
to capitalism. Is this fragmentation or genuine theoretical differences?
