Nestor states, in reference to the supposed conflict between national
capitalism and the international advanced capitalist network:
"Damaged, certainly yes. This is a task for all radicals.
If this were not the case, then why do imperialist bourgeoisies
systematically fight against this kind of governments."
Why? For the same reason they fight against each other, for the same
reason they squeeze the smaller members of their own class [whcih the
national capitalists are]-- to aggrandize profit, to establish a general
rate of profit... for the same reasons they do anything-- fear and greed.
Moments in the struggle of national revolutions? That's what national
capitalisms are? They very well may be just that-- just as
counterrevolutions are also moments in the struggle of national revolutions.
National revolutions in Europe in the 19th century were intimately bound up
with counterrevolution against the emerging struggle for the emancipation of
The national revolution in the United States, the Civil War, is intimately
bound up with counterrevolution, allowed and supported by the victorious
national bourgeoisie of the north.
The "national revolution" in every country that did not, relying on the fSU,
liquidate the economic power, the property of its national bourgeoisie,
inevitably gave way to the imposition of an imperialist hand-maiden
Does anyone think for one second that that, "the struggle where the masses
in the semicolonial... world get their historical consciousness" is what's
going on in China today? That the Deng and post-Deng period of capitalist
penetration is indicative of the masses in a semi-colonial country getting
their historical consciousness? If anybody thought that, it might make me
despair, for just a second. But it wouldn't leave me speechless.
