welcome something like rule by the EU or somesuch.
I dis-agree entirely, an internationalist-socialist global government would be a disaster. The Soviet Union was part of the attempt to create it, by
expanding its borders. Communism, ala marx, is also the 'core' of the movement, witness Guera and Castro agitating all across the globe.
"Founded in 1884 by Beatrice and Sidney Webb, George Bernard Shaw and HG Wells as a group promoting non-Marxist evolutionary socialism."
They're more active in the UK, from what I understand.
Communist Party, USA. Should be illegal in my opinion tho.
You're in the US, so you'd probably prefer the CPUSA.
Things like Moveon.org are probably too ineffectual.
Basically, any actual communist group (more or less) is working for the global revolt of the proletariat and the establishment of a dictatorship of
that technically communism is a transition stage leading into socialism (tho I may
have it reversed) in marx's usage. He
advocates it because, he's a futurist, and sees socialism as completely inevitable, just like moveing from the pre-agricultural society to the
agricultural one was, and just like moving from pre-industrial to industrial was inevitable. So in that way any real communist group is technically
working to revolution, murder, destruction, and totalitarianism. Thats why they were outlawed and prosecuted in the US during the Red Scare, and
thats why Anarchism and Socialism are so tightly associated.
people, i suspect, are less interested in that, and more interested in Sensible government even on a global nad local scale, so you might
be more interested in European Greens (not
quite teh same as nader's group) or any Third Wayist/Communitarian movements ( I think
in the UK is part of the Third Way
