I am sending you (or your organisation) this letter/mail, because somehow you are presenting yourself (or your organisation) as “communist” or “revolutionary” or “applying Marxism” (or scientific socialism or dialectical and historical materialism....).
Well, I consider myself also as such.....
But at the same time it is my opinion that the MOST communist organisations that I know are “contaminated” with “some” opportunism (mostly a form of dogmatism) and that several (in perhaps an earlier period) communist organisations have become in reality REFORMIST organisations.
I have in the passed five, six years (that is in the time that I have been expelled from the Workers Party of Belgium (WPB, pvda.be/ ptb.be) analysed what I consider being the development of opportunism in the WPB and the deterioration of the WPB into a REFORMIST party.
I think that the WPB is to consider as “teacher of the negative example”.
At the other hand I made some analyses about the political line of the Greek KKE. At this moment it is my opinion that the KKE is making some opportunist “mistakes” which are resembling the opportunist mistakes which the WPB was making before the “coup” of some revisionist cadres in 2004, which lead to her actual reformist political line, “affirmed” on her 8th congress in 2008.
I am considering the KKE as an example of the danger of when you are NOT recognising and fighting opportunism in your organisation, the danger of REFORMISM (defended by Marxist-sounding phraseology) is real.
The result of my analysing, you can find here in downloadable documents.
Some point of views taking the WPB or the KKE as example for the two cases as I explained here above, you can find here.
Some points of view of how I am thinking about revolutionary strategy, you can find here.
I hope that I can stimulate some discussion about how to come to the necessary revolutionary strategy which has now to be developed, among all those who consider themselves as the vanguard of the working class or as communist or revolutionary.
Always ready for discussion I am greeting you now,
PS. In attachment in a pdf-file my latest point of view
