1971-2021: 50 Years Since the USA Reneged on Bretton Woods

For the CWO, and indeed the entire political tendency to which we belong, it is axiomatic that we are living through capitalism’s third global economic crisis. For over a century the economic system (mode of production) which was once progressive for humanity, in that it created the material possibility of a prosperous world community without national borders or class divisions, has represented a barrier to human progress when it is not a direct threat to human existence itself.

Marx and Engels and Racialism – W. O. Henderson

Marx, his daughters & Engels.

In disputes with anarchists Marxists have often been quick to refer to Bakunin’s (and occasionally, Proudhon’s) anti-Semitism to try to dismiss the credibility of all that Bakunin ever wrote. Anarchists generally respond by openly acknowledging this horrible fault in Bakunin but also insisting that Bakunin had interesting and relevant aspects of his thought worth considering.

Yet Marxists seem more often unaware of and/or silent on the far greater number of racial and ethnic slurs and prejudices found in the writings of Marx and Engels. The following PDF article, whatever its limitations, is a convenient collection of some of these comments.
