What's up with the ultra left Kauts? Ultra lefts with a hardon for Mike Macnair, CPGBPCC, weekly worker and a soft spot for kautsky and ticktin... Where is the appeal of social democrats to people who generally have decent politics?

If you reduce ultra-left to Korsch/Mattick(or Dauve), it probably doesn't make sense.

But people like Pannekoek (in 1954) advised that for a thorough marxist basis you need first to arrive at the height of theoretical consciousness of SPD around 1900 (and second, connect to the inner-party debates 1903-14 and so on).

CPGB are interesting because they grapple with the history, eg:

http://weeklyworker.co.uk/worker/1016/w ... ty-secret/
quote:
For Georges Haupt, writing in 1970, “the fiasco of 1914 … still always dominates judgements and views [in relation to the Second International]. One had emphasised the significance of this ‘capital offence’, yet neglected a clarification of the process that led to it, thereby arriving at the false conventional posing of the question: is [August 4] based on the lack of theoretical reflection or on the thoughtless repetition of the lessons of a Marxism that had been raised to … a dogma and isolated from practice?”
-

I think Korsch interprets the combination of theory and practice (which is a Kautskian 101 idea btw), in an activist, tailist sense. He sounds like a maoist sometimes. Here is Kautsky's reply to Korsch; http://platypus1917.org/2012/01/30/dest ... r-marxism/

Here's a critical summary of Korsch's view by Thalheimer;
