[Xmca-l] Re: Don't do it



Hi xmca-ers
Looks to me like Ulci is on to a hiding to nowhere with his conviction that
socialist revolution is a necessity.
Strange to imply that *all *revolutions will *inevitably *result in
social-human conditions worse that the overthrown ones, when the quoted
French overturning of society was a bourgeois revolution.
IMO Ulci adduces evidence that Turkish social conditions are at present
intolerable.
A literate debate about speech acts seems a strange displacement of her/his
original anguished cry for changes that result in greater justice for
oppressed populations.
But then I believe that the current capitalist anarchy is unconditionally
intolerable.
[No strawpersons please - Stalinism was an brutally disastrously
dysfunctional anti-social formation.]
