THE COMING INSURRECTION is, simply put, a manifesto. It is dull and wandering. As a "workable plan" for a society, it is the usual Marxist utopian vision of all men enjoying the benefits of nobody's exploited labor.
And as scary as the idea of anarchists and Marxists rioting in the streets is (Don't LOOK--they're doing it right now in France on 10/22/10), the really scary part of this book is the authors' analysis of the state of Western Civilization. This is not so much a condemnation of Capitalism by Marxists--we're all familiar with that--but, rather a clear outline of the hardcore Marxist view of Progressivism, community organizing, Environmentalism and Social Democratic ideas.
The contention the authors have that Western Civilization is IN collapse and not in "crisis" should cause you to consider whether or not government action is designed to prop up the free-market economy and society or whether they are merely trying to prop up the FACADE of the free-market economy and society. Ask yourself if the authors are right when they conclude that the negation of ideas has become the norm and whether or not current society exalts those who believe in nothing and demonizes those who hold to principles. Ask yourself what REALLY drives those in government and the environmental movement and compare it to what the authors think is the motivating force.
DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS. If you want to stick your head in the sand or don't want to give up the comfortable idea that everything will be alright because it's always worked out OK before, that's your choice.Read more ›
But American readers (hearers) will instantly be able to envision the analysis in the American context. This is not a classic format nor is it classic content. The authors' introduction clarifies that this is not a composition based on their own viewpoint It does involve an analysis or reflection on what they have observed.
The oral presentation is well done and easy to listen to. They present this as a compilation of comments and viewpoints they have picked up and recorded in barroom discussions and backrooms, ion street corners and in various locales where the general populace discuss the problems of the day. They present a basic view that can be called Marxist in the formal sense, and they carefully define their viewpoint, indicating that their commentary on what they have compiled focuses on the perspective of group or society, that is, communal concepts.
They dissociate the term commnune-ism from the classic Leninist concept known politically as Communism. They describe what they understand as communal living in society. The perspectives here seem closer to Marx's original analysis of early capitalist industrial society in Europe. But you will see it is not exactly Marxism as we have known it, either.
The perspective is quite disdainful about the possibilities of the current society, but does not fit neatly into what we have known as "Communism" in the 20th century.Read more ›
