Lucid Marx

Even the old Soviet Union (1917-1991), in its English translations of Marxist texts, used the term ‘spiritual’ to refer to ‘consciousness’, and in so doing, marked a clear separation between socialist and communist theory, with that of the theology of the established Judeo-Christian tradition that had dominated Europe with its ecclesiastical imaginations for over a thousand years.

China’s Revolutionary Path is Correct

The problem with this ‘rightest’ deviation from Communist comradeliness, is that it plays directly into the hands of the political rightwing and gives fuel to the racially motivated ideologues. Many in the West oppose China from a position of residual racism. This is the bourgeois position of the need to denigrate and demean at the point of contact, used as a means to control and subordinate anyone, or anything that is perceived or ‘declared’ as ‘different’, and deviating from the presumed ‘norm’.

A Socialist Solution: P Verses NP

P verses NP can only be solved by a human mind at the moment – simply because it is the human mind that has produced it. A computer cannot solve P verses NP without the technical and mechanical philosophy that defines contemporary computer science being radically altered out of its current bourgeois dominated format. This is nothing short of a proletariat revolution and the seizing of the means of production. As modern computers reflect the bourgeois minds that have produced them, therefore it can be correctly stated that problems that P verses NP represent, are nothing less than the inherent contradictions implicit within the bourgeois mind set. Or to put it another way, how can greed for profit create a system of technological expression that is not limited by the rationale of ’greed for profit’? To achieve this the bourgeois scientists would have to think beyond the socio-economic conditions that have produced them.

Last Train Home (歸途列車) Film Review

Despite many permanently resettling in the cities, and abandoning their farm land, it is estimated that around 130 million migrant workers make the trip into the cities, whilst older and younger members of their families stay on the farm land and look after the home. This army of migrant workers spend 50 weeks of the year working in factories that provide living quarters and regular food to their workers. It is only during the two-week holiday of Chinese New Year that the factories shut-down and the employees are allowed home.

Palestine and the Asymmetric Value of Life

Any attack upon Israel, or Israeli interests, is automatically interpreted by the Israeli state as being motivated by ‘anti-Semitic’ sentiment, and no distinction is made between these acts, and those that are genuinely ‘revolutionary’ in nature. This is how the propaganda of the Israeli state deliberately conflates and confuses genuine anti-Semitism with genuine revolution.
