[Marxism] Antifa matters

There is a very strange irony, at least for me, reading all the recent
material regarding the matter of antifa and the alt-right. This is because
yesterday was the anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and
Freedom in 1963. A. Phillip Randolph and Bayard Rustin as the principle
organizers were far from perfect. Furthermore the popular media discourse
about Martin Luther King, Jr. fails to point out on a regular basis that
MLK had armed bodyguards surrounding him often. Yet when all is said and
done the impact of the March and the impact of Antifa is profound and
obvious. Violence and nonviolence are simply different tactics for
different circumstances. The argument otherwise is absurd. King was able to
understand that. Middle class white boys slumming it in sweatshirts and
bandanas don't because they don't have to worry about the consequences.
