He may mean he's renouncing marxism but this sentence doesn't say that.
What the sentence says is that he is renouncing the _current
organizational forms" of marxism -- which in my view is more ofa a
precondition for being a marxist in the u.s. today than any rejection of
marxism. Organizations as those named substitute for marxism a
particular set of opinions on contingent relations at this time.
