Today a post where I disagree with a spartacist sympathiser. He argues for a subjective programme (“connecting to the current consciousness”). I argue for an objective programme. Read on: (more…)

Marxist unity (and, if they want to be involved, anarchists too) can only possibly happen, I think, on a common Marxist programme; a document spelling out the objective tasks of what is necessary to go from here to the seizure of power of the working class and the transformation of society towards communism after that. There needs to be an acceptance of such a programme, not necessarily an agreement, as such a programme needs to be debated and tested against living experience. (more…)

Vandaag een week geleden hield ik een inleiding op de eerste openbare bijeenkomst van Occupy Sittard. Door tijdgebrek ben ik er tot nu toe nog niet aan toegekomen om er een verlag van te schrijven. Bij deze. Ik zal ook de inleiding online zetten in een wat aangepaste vorm. (more…)

Today I’m introducing a new bit on my blog. So far my blog has been in Dutch exclusively. I’ve also had an English blog on the revleft.com website. This went well until recently. Long story short, the website was down for 4 days and I’m not very certain how much longer it will remain up.

So, I’m transferring my blogs from Revleft to here. I won’t be doing this all at once, this would take a lot of time and would overwhelm you 🙂 Instead, I’ll probably do a blog or two a day. Since there are 15 blogposts on revleft, this will take a few days. In the mean time, you can get accustomed to my more theoretical considerations and positions. This is within a range of topics, but often within one underlying theme: Partyism, or the organisation of the working class as a class. Don’t worry if you don’t get it yet, I’m sure it will get clearer when my contributions are posted 🙂

Vandaag op de voorpagina van het pulpblaadje van de Persgroep: “VVD: Pak uitkering Occupy-activist af“. Ook de Telegraaf heeft het er over. De boodschap is duidelijk: Alle Occupiers zijn bijstandstrekkers en vieze profiteurs die nu op kosten van de hardwerkende Nederlander op het Malieveld, etc. zitten te blowen.

Oh ja? (more…)

Even ter uwer informatie: De SP is géén socialistische partij. Dat zegt althans partijvoorman Jan Marijnissen in een recent interview met De Pers. Even een relevant citaat uit het interview:

Wordt Nederland dan toch nog socialistisch?

‘Het woord socialisme gebruik ik eigenlijk niet.’ (more…)

Vandaag was er in Sittard voor de tweede week een Occupy bijeenkomst. Vorige week zaterdag was de eerste, maar daar moest ik helaas verstek laten gaan. Vandaar dus pas dit eerste stukje. (more…)
