Interview with Per Henriksson in Against the Wage
For communists and revolutionaries (as moments of the communist movement) it is vital with theoretical discussion and clarification, and to take part practically – in a conscious way – in the everyday struggle of the proletarian class. Theory for the sake of theory, as in the bourgeois sense of theory, is of no use; nor ‘practice’ for the sake of practice as in the (also bourgeois) vanguardist, activist, anti-intellectual sense, that at first sight may seem like a more preferable road to take, but in the end only is the opposite side of the bourgeois ‘theorist’s’ coin. (From Against the Wage no. 2, Friday, August 19, 2005)

Richard Gunn: Marxism, Metatheory and Critique

Simon Clarke: The Global Accumulation of Capital and the Periodisation of the Capitalist State Form
