One of my interventions at the SWP’s Marxism event in London back in July

The session was “Anarchism – A Marxist Critique” with the presentation by John Molyneux.

I come in at 0:39:40 arguing for a more sophisticated approach to the revolutionary class-struggle elements of anarchism, like the WSM, than Molyneux had given in his presentation.

In his summary he makes a joke about me defending the WSM (1:09:25) and then reads from the original Platform (which interestingly he had printed off though hadn’t referred to at all in his presentation) and then makes some political points which seemed to me to be merely making my point that looking at the political content would indicate that the differences between revolutionary anarchism and revolutionary Marxism while important are not as great as Molyneux was making out.

For a more sophisticated response to the politics of Plaformism see http://www.bolshevik.org/Pamphlets/Platformism/Platformism.html
