The only thing worse than predicting the future is being trapped by the past

25 February 2021 — theplanningmotivedotcom

This article was provoked by a comment Michael Roberts made in his most recent posting Titled Mission Impossible. The comment is presented in full below as is the link to the post. His comment is not exceptional, it is part and parcel of the 20th Century tradition loosely described as Marxist-Leninist- Trotskyist. By workers government, this article understands such a category to represent the dictatorship of the proletariat, that is after workers have successfully conquered state power and subdued the capitalist class and their agents. It is not interpreted as a government where workers are in office while the parties of the capitalist class are in opposition, in other words “parliamentary cretinism”. The proposals outlined below therefore takes place after the revolution, not before it. Finally, instead of using terms such as nationalizing the top 100, or 500 or 2000 transnational corporations, the term used is, “nationalizing of the commanding heights of the economy”.
