[Marxism] The Hardt-Negri declaration

It was to be expected that Toni Negri and Michael Hardt would 
eventually weigh in on the protests sweeping the world, from 
Tahrir Square to Wall Street. Their Declaration can be read on 
and is well worth the trouble. (I found it impossible to print but 
that might have just been a problem on my own computer.) Even if 
you disagree with much of it (as I do), it is necessary reading 
because of their influence. Furthermore, I detect a positive 
evolution in their thinking—especially a willingness to reconsider 
the merits of state power, albeit in a highly qualified manner. 
Like someone saying that though broccoli tastes like shit, it 
might be good for you.
