Never Thought This Would Happen

I never thought I’d be sharing posts by a Marxist, especially one with whom I’ve often fought online before; however, these three posts are really spot on in so many ways. They deserve to be read far and wide.

Post one, two, three.

    I wonder if he’s finally starting to realize how he contributed to the cancer of performative self-righteousness. This was another article of his that someone sent me:

      I am shocked to see this come from him. Perhaps he’s close to understanding why Marxism is not and never will be effective the way Marx thought. Holy cow, I’m genuinely pleased!

      “The right has always understood something that the left continuously fails to grasp: people enjoy power, and will try to accumulate it whether they are conscious of it or not. Thus, instead of pretending it is possible to eradicate power, the right insists it is best to formalize those power structures, to have clear lines and hierarchies through which power runs. Leftist groups, instead, deny that the ‘oppressed’ also accumulate power, and thus become victims to people like Karen.”

      I put little stock toward the left getting anything but yes, it seems here he finally does and I was really shocked to see it. and the second article is just heart breaking.

      and I also think it takes courage for him to write these articles, say these things. He mentions the harassment he’s been getting for it in one of the comments.

  2. It would be sense of maturity going on. I read them and found them to be miles apart from the ones from 2016.

  3. And this is why I always make it clear that my issue is with Marxism as an ideology, not individual Marxists as human beings. Anyone can have valuable insights, useful observations, or a good idea no matter their political affiliation. I lean pretty far to the Left myself in a lot of ways, but I can’t honestly call myself a Leftist due to the very issues Rhyd mentioned. I want to actually help people, not just sit around gratifying myself over how opened minded I am the way a lot of the woke Leftists do.

  4. The third essay is dead-on, right in the 10-ring, perfecto. It’s ressentiment all the way down.

  5. The third essay is dead-on, right in the 10-ring, perfecto. It’s ressentiment all the way down. It reminds me of conversations I had with friends in Feri/Faerie trad witchcraft and in Reclaiming, they of the “consensus” leadership. “It’s a sham,” I said, “Hierarchies will always emerge. All you can do is make them visible and make the people in them responsible to the rest.”
