Can’t. Fucking. Wait.

The first publication in any language of Che Guevara’s controversial and  critical analysis of the Soviet economic model. As minister for  industry and head of Cuba’s National Bank, Che Guevara prepared this  manuscript to compare the Cuban experience with that of the Soviet bloc.  With extensive appendices, this is the complete anthology of Che  Guevara on political economy. Writing in 1965, Che explained his  critique was necessary “because Marxist research in the field of the  economy is proceeding along dangerous routes. The intransigent dogmatism  of the Stalin era has been succeeded by an inconsistent pragmatism.” He  justified what he described as his “heresy” by pointing to Marx’s  statement in the first few pages of Capital, about “capitalism’s  inability to criticize itself, using apologetics which now,  unfortunately, can be applied to Marxist political economy.” He argued  for doing away with capitalist concepts and formulas and concentrating  instead on the motivation and development of individual human beings. Published in association with the Che Guevara Studies Center in Havana.

"Tax the Rich," worst slogan ever

selucha:

I really don’t understand why some leftists have this bizarre attachment to bourgeois legalism, embodied in the slogan “tax the rich.” Why are we, ourselves, demanding that a capitalist state extract more money from the capitalist class, which could only help preserve the illusion of ‘fairness’ in the capitalist system? It is a slogan whose underlying ideology envisions a paternalistic welfare state emerging from within our current system, a state where the revolutionary energy of the masses is subordinated to the cautious constitutionalism of the reformist left in full collaboration with imperialism and anti-people elements.

Expropriate the rich. Fuck the Constitution. Death to US imperialism. Long live the revolutionary struggle.

I’m done for the moment. I’ll be back to Latin America soon.

Love and kisses,

Selucha
