So I'm out of college now and with all the spare time on my hand I figured I'd start posting again. I knew redmarx had been dead for a while so I joined revleft again and in my introduction post told them I was someone who had been banned in the great left communist purge. They didn't really give a **** because revleft is pretty much dead too (honestly, it's barely more active than revforum).

Anyways, DNZ still posts there but his throne as the intellectual leader of revleft is being challenged by a guy called Tim Redd...

Maybe I should just do revforum...

I wonder where all the online communist activity is these days anyway.

I wonder if I was right in positing that communist theoretical activity is merely a reflex of working class struggle and there's not much in the world right now (I can't say that anymore authoritatively than I can currently identify caprifoliaceae or whatever else for my plant systematics class though).

I actually wondered that too. There was probably a noticeable surge in activity when the occupy movement was in full force, but it's kind of hard to tell (especially in regards to revleft) because of all the **** that has happened.

I wonder if you can't separate the **** that happened from the fact that there was the surge in activity.

Facebook. All the cool kids have boners for Mike Macnair now though, and "old" Pannekoek.

LEAVE FEL ALONE. JUST BECAUSE THE 'LEFT' IS A DEATH-CULT IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU'RE NOT THE PROBLEM.

Anyway, while 'left communist purge' is a misleading phrase not even admissible on Jacob Richter-esque terms now given that the whole Bordiga fad thing has sort of fallen out of fashion a bit, it might be worth being a bit cautious on Revleft because its decline generally led it away from its point, which was socialism, and so it became a bit of a vehicle for what remains of reactionary sentiment, although evidently communism itself and the few isolated places, like Revleft, Revforum,, etc., aren't really related or proportionate and in a sense such webforums and their dialects and such are indebted to various myths about the limited extent of socialism, etc., which obscure the reality of the case. As such, Revleft's decline was a painless process and rendered it largely obscure for quite a while, as it turns out for it. Unfortunate for Revleft, eh.

"The years of reaction (1907–10). Tsarism was victorious. All the revolutionary and opposition parties were smashed. Depression, demoralisation, splits, discord, defection, and pornography took the place of politics."

“Left-Wing” Communism: an Infantile Disorder
The Principal Stages in the History of Bolshevism https://www.marxists.org/archive/lenin/ ... c/ch03.htm

What does Lenin understand here by pornography? He had used the word specifically in 1907:

"After the dissolution of the Second Duma despondency, penitence, and apostasy became the outstanding features of political literature.
...
As regards the form of Mr. Gorn’s statement, it is highly characteristic of our times, when “educated society” turns away from the revolution and seizes upon pornography. A person who considers himself a Social-Democrat betakes himself to a non-Party newspaper [the bourgeois paper Tovarishch] in order to address the public at large in the manner of Novoye Vremya [a redbating rightwing paper] on the subject of the workers’ party “forcing” the movement of the “avowed” minority! Renegade moods among us create also renegade morals. "

Something which people turn to in a reactionary manner and which is associated with renegade morals. They might just mean people getting naked and pretending to do something, or something broader but more specific vis-a-vis the word 'porneia' in the Bible, in any case I think that at the least pornography on top of holy mountains is something which is disapproved of now, so in brief Marxism shall no longer be threatened or turned against in favour of pornography or relativism or whatever really, which is good. That meaning is certainly touched upon, at the same time they sort of seem to mean some sort of bourgeois orgy of just appealing to people back in the day through repeating capital's views and so on, as much of art and so on was, and a certain Russian tendency not to put up with such things. Obviously such things are now less appealing than, say, Corbyn's avowal that they have not, ''really read as much of Marx as we should have done," of which RedMarx is proud I guess. I mean, I guess Zanthorus isn't really proud of things involving communism right now because of Zanthorus being socially awkward or something, but otherwise it is very much chic, hipster, etc., to read Marx, although Owen has underground appeal or sth.

Pornography-- as in exposing the most intimate details and functions to public view for commercial purposes.
