When the Bolsheviks too over Imperial Russia and created the Soviet Union, when the grunts on the Russian front turned around and shot their officers, when Cossacks were unleashed against women and children but even that brutality failed, a political, economic and social theory had already been served up by Karl Marx, ready to go, one size fits all, and Communism with all of its strengths and flaws was the order of the day and ruled. Today it’s a very different story. Alan Greenspan, in the wake of 2008, admitted that modern capitalism no longer had any philosophical foundation short of Gordon Gekko greed, and – on our side – we would be hard pressed to claim a philosophy or theory of a new revolution. My gut feeling is that some kind of post-cyber, post Trotsky, post-Guevara IWW, global, neo-anarcho-syndicalism may what’s needed, but I don’t have the recipe. I am just not that kind of clever bastard. But someone has to be working on it, don’t they? I mean, don't they?
