Marx declared in the Communist Manifesto that communists:
- “[H]ave no interests separate and apart from those of the proletariat as a whole.”
- “[D]o not set up any sectarian principles of their own, by which to shape and mould the proletarian movement.”
- And that we “fight for the attainment of the immediate aims, for the enforcement of the momentary interests of the working class; but in the movement of the present, [we] also represent and take care of the future.”
This blog has sought to accomplish this by:
- Defending and advancing the revolutionary movement and the people’s struggle as a whole, across the secular–Islamist spectrum of living, fighting forces rather than subject its component forces to some sort of ‘Marxist’ ideological litmus test and thereby replace unconditional solidarity with unacceptable sectarianism.
- Infusing the latter with the politics of social class, specifically the wage-laboring class, but not in an exclusive or dogmatic manner. Other classes may not be able to create a democratically and humanely planned economy, but they too deserve better than the tyranny of unfettered capitalism (as Pope Francis termed it).
