Demystifying Economicism

Author

  • Pillai N., Vijayamohanan

Abstract

Unfortunately our communists in general and their academic lackeys are still in the habit of the mere memorising and repetition of formulas, like “old Bolsheviks”, some under the mesmerism of Lenin’s Two Tasks of Social Democracy and some, Trosky’s Results and Prospects. This note is hoped to demystify the issues at stake.
