Sigh... I feel like I'm playing whack-a-mole.
Here we are again with Joe Green
misrepresenting/misunderstanding/maliciously lying about/displaying his
ignorance of (you all tell me which one) permanent revolution.
The point of permanent revolution is to grasp the INTERTWINING of the
democratic and socialist revolutions, which MEANS at EVERY STAGE supporting
EVERY democratic demand, and NEVER abstaining from a democratic struggle no
matter how long it takes to reveal its dialectical connection to the class
struggle.
And in practice EVERY MENA Trotskyist group in the revolutionary socialist
tradition has done exactly that. ALL the groups which have issued joint
statements, contributed to al-Manshour and Permanent Revolution journal
etc., have theorized and acted in a way that bears NO relationship to
Green's malicious caricature.

Keep on trying to derail the class struggle, Joe, it won't work.
