Dean is taking the wrong end first. There cannot be a theory of a
givenmovement until that movement has come into existence through what will
appear as "spontaneous" activity. First action, on a fairly wide scale, and
THEN, within that movement, the gradual theorization of the kinds of
organization that movement needs. This is how the RSDLP came into existence.
The Pary Zizek,
Dezn, et al seem to be envisaging is a wet dream of Stalin/Trotsky, which
neer had any real material base in advanced industrial nations.
This topic too I hope to come back to in afew weeks. I'm not going to read
the posts in til then.
