[Marxism] Where have all the revolutions gone? Was 'Why aren't workers storming the barricades?'

Why have labour and socialist movements declined so dramatically over the
past 30 years? Is it mostly a symptom, rather than the cause,of low levels
of struggle today? The article below, published in *The Economist* Jan 21
2014 asks if rising inequality is more tolerable today.

Whatever the case, the old socialist models are no longer attractive not
only because of their flaws but because they are now relics of another
time, they don't look fresh, modern, liberal etc.

Where there are newish socialistic struggles - mainly Venezuela - an
impasse seems to be reached that is really hard to push beyond, even
though. . .
