And Doug thought he'd found an opening:
>"The whole people"? What a strange concept coming from an alleged Marxist.
>Whatever happened to class conflict, Comrade?
"Bourgeois democratic establishment", "democratic demands", Doug, rule of
the people and all that. Society from a bourgeois perspective.
Doug is so blunted in his reactions to bourgeois chicanery in the
imperialist epoch that he doesn't remember what a democratic demand is.
There was a hell of a debate on all this between Lenin and Kautsky and, in
parallel, Trotksy and Kautsky.
>Your professed indifference to bourgeois politics is also strangely
Gossip about shifting sands that doesn't mean doodely squat.
>I seem to remember Marx writing quite a bit about the various
>competing fractions in British and French politics, and he even had a thing
>or two to say about U.S. politics - even getting into the structure and
>meaning of the U.S. Senate.
He rarely neglected to give the class and sectoral roots of the politicians
>Much easier to stay pure and denounce everyone else's impurities
Tired old putdown. Read Hegel on Innocence in the Phenomenology.
