James Pitman says:
“ I do
think that bourgeois radicals can highlight issues in a way that can
also get the support of others from their class, as well as the working
class, and catalyse struggle ….”
I beg to differ with you on this. These pseudo radicals can do more harm than good to the Leftist Movements. Unless we expose their pseudo arguments, they can distort the peoples' struggles and end up as apologists of the ruling class ideology. There is an obvious danger in the way some in the Left are carrying these pseudos on their shoulders. There is no dearth of competent and genuine Leftist intellectuals who are contributing immensely to the radicalisation of struggles, especially in India.
