They Said

"The notion of the capitalist class on the one side and the working class on the other may sound "radical," but it is neither Marxist, nor found in life and politics. Pure forms exist in high theory, but nowhere else."

Sam Webb, CPUSA National Chair Oct 29, 2009 People's World, "A Ragged Process," http://www.peoplesworld.org/a-ragged-process/


Editor's note: A debate thread on Webb's article has begun at the blog Willamette Reds. It includes a comment on his remarkable assertions about what is Marxist and what is not by MLToday's Zoltan Zigedy.
