    Default How to terminate the militant tendency once and for all

    The so-called 'Militant tendency' were thoroughly exposed as opportunists when they adopted chauvinist positions on a number of different issues. Most notably with regard to the Malvinas conflict in 1982.

    I think we can all agree that currently existing offshoots of the aforementioned undesirables, namely the self-styled "committee of the workers international" and equally misnamed "international marxist tendency" must be mercilessly hunted and destroyed like the rats that they are!

    Practical question: How do we go about performing this very important task?

    Seeing as this is seen as acceptable by an admin, from here on out when I have a disagreement with someone I will be asking them to reference this. If you want an explanation of my views, too bad.

    I find your glib reply to this rather serious matter cause for concern.

    Are you not fully aware of just how chauvinist and opportunist this group was?

    I'm willing to bet that there is no real cause for alarm in regards to this group.

    The fact that sympathisers of these chauvinists are allowed to post here invalidates this forum's claim to be revolutionary (it's what I believe the "rev" in "revleft" is supposed to stand for)

    Answer this question: what actual danger is posed by them?

    Second, who even are these people?

    This kind of fratricidal idiocy was perhaps somewhat entertaining in the lull the left found itself in a few years ago but has long outlived it's novelty. Perhaps we should turn you and the militant tendency both into fertilizer? You would at least be of use to the public at that point.

    I mean, you're describing a lot of Marxists when you say that.

    You're seemingly calling for murder and barbarism here.... How do you think this will work out on an internet forum? What do you do other than call for other leftists to be persecuted? Why, out of literally all the things that need addressing right now, do you think that this is a "very important task?"
    If we have no business with the construction of the future or with organizing it for all time, there can still be no doubt about the task confronting us at present: the ruthless criticism of the existing order, ruthless in that it will shrink neither from its own discoveries, nor from conflict with the powers that be.
    - Karl Marx
