Mike Taber shares my take on Blanc's business about neo-Kautskyism being
an alternative to the "insurrectionary" tendencies of people like me:
There is no distinct “Leninist strategy of insurrection” – any more than
there’s a Leninist strategy of strikes, of demonstrations, of picket
lines, of protest meetings, of study circles, or of fund appeals.
There indeed was such an “insurrectionary strategy,” but it comes from
Blanquism, not Leninism. Louis Auguste Blanqui was a dedicated and
admirable French revolutionary from the nineteenth century, whose
followers did come up with such a perspective. But Lenin argued strongly
against that view.
