Uncommon Thought Journal: Left Anticommunism: the unkindest cut

This essay is vital for understanding the Anti-Communist trolling of members of an organization which were part of an openly Imperialist, nationalist and corporatist Political Party which administered an openly fascist rule over six of Ireland's counties on this forum. Its a good essay but I would criticize it for being to charitable.



"Part opportunism, part careerism, part willful denial (or ignorance) of true capitalist and imperial dynamics, and part attachment to the comforts of being within the respectable fold of "permissible" criticism, Left Anticommunism continues to take a huge toll on the American left. In this typically comprehensive and incisive essay, Michael Parenti explores the reasons why the Left anti-communist stance must be seen for what it is: a de facto collaboration with the forces defending the corporate status quo. [This selection is from Parenti's book Blackshirts and Reds: Rational Fascism and the Overthrow of Communism (City Lights, 1997). It is reproduced here by courtesy of the author. ]"
