The Mensheviks are back at it.
Once again 90% of their argument against permanent revolution is based on
whether particular worker organizing/mobilizing/theoretical steps are
possible or likely. And their answer is always No. Nowhere do they talk
about how the democratic revolution is on the defensive because the only
other significant class - the bourgeoisie - is AGAINST the democratic
If Communist Voice is really for that revolution they should be helping
workers advance, not lecturing them about their powerlessness.
p.s. has CVO done anything for the Alexandria Shipyard Workers?
