Role of the state

Lou Proyect mentioned the anti-statist spin of New Left/Green thinking,
hauling Brecher and Wainright before the court as exemplars.

I think it's ironic, or interesting, or revealing, that this NL/G emphasis
on localism, "community" (what a slippery concept, that), civil society,
etc. coincides with a tremendous weakening of the left. Is this decentering
an example of what Karl Kraus said about psychoanalysis - that it is the
disease of which it purports to be the cure?
