Indeed. I find however that Kautsky was waging a criticism by more of a political standpoint while Luxemburg from a more revolutionary standpoint. It would be interesting to see how her opinion of the Bolsheviks would change in the years after the Civil War and the rise of Stalin.
Thankfully. It surprises me, however, that "anarcho"-nationalists are the ones with some ground presence. Although, this is evidence that the Internet can be deceiving.
The world has changed since the early 00's, that's for sure. Rojava must have come as a great surprise to them. Even Bookchin would be surprised by Rojava. The proponents of post-leftism do come across as kind of bigots and arrogant, especially to leftists, from what I have seen of them.
Regarding Rojava, it will be interesting to see how their relations with the Syrian regime and Russia will change after the events of the last week. Even though the current conflict has ended, tensions are still high. How Turkey will respond, especially after their declaration that they will be more involved in Syria will also be extremely important for Rojava.
Because people who make the issues are sometimes clueless to the consequences of various programs and events, and may even have a bias to MAKE the choice look bad. For one, social programs may be given a more negative spin by reactionaries or capitalists.
For me, most of the marxist tendencies descent from marxism-leninism: Trotskyism, Maoism... What I meant is that the importance of the revolutionary party comes from after Marx, it is not original marxism, it is something that appeared after it. I understand the importance of the revolutionary party, what I can't understand is the importance after the revolution. Of course it is necessary an organizational discipline, the unions are organizations. The only marxists that I don't consider leninist are council communism, situationism, austromarxism, DeLeonism, Analytical marxism, autonomism, post-marxism and luxembourgism.
I know that marxism is not religious, but I know people who think that what Marx said is somehow is inquestionable, the marxists in my city are very heterodox even though they are leninist (remember what I said about what one of them called me when he found that I was a council communist). However, how do we have to interpret historical materialism, as a metaphor? And I already said that other people could give him a less-biased explanation (and it could be better if I were using spanish instead of english).
Sorry, I meant orthodox, not heterodox XD
And sorry if I seemed too harsh.
Well, now the YPG are threatened to retreat back over the Euphrates River due to Turkish-US pressure, effectively leaving Manjib, which they fought for, to other parts of the SDF.
I wonder how longer it will be before they are left completely on their own. Probably not long. I hope that they have a backup plan and that they had planned for this, in some way.
Whether they've planned for this or not, I don't see them lasting very long on their own.
They can last on their own, they did that before the Americans helped them and now are more organized and I believe have more people on their side. They will not be able to take more areas from ISIS and other Islamist groups, however. They will have to be much more defensive. And if Turkey decides to attack them fully, they will be destroyed. If ISIS decides to draw all their attention towards them, they will have a much bigger problem than they would have two months ago. Only time will tell what will happen, though.
I just find it interesting that turkish and americans are deciding where the YPG can go in syrian territory.
Without american support the YPG would deteriorate, at least in the amount of arms they have, much of the YPG is volunteers though so i doubt their current numbers would be affected much.
That's what I meant-though I should have been more specific. If the US withdraws it's support-which it will do almost certainly eventually unless it can co-opt the movement-then Rojava has no chance.
