Lucien Sève « Le communisme est mort, vive le communisme ! »

French Marxist Lucien Sève on the crisis of the French communist party,
With the death of what was so improperly called communism, history has entered a new phase. In view of the limitless freedom that capital enjoys today, we are in for boundless catastrophes. While on the left there still is no effective political alternative, not even a mental set of opposable political references. All our woes stem from this void. The task of those who follow in the wake of Marx today is therefore clear: for years we have been talking of inventing a communism for the 21st century. Now, at long last, the time has come to do it. We have had enough talk on the subject.
...not even a mental set of opposable political references... no kidding, the left worldwide is in the void.
