The Parenti Question

Michel Parenti offers an “interesting” description and evaluation of “Left Anticommunists” and “pure socialists” in his magnum opus. Unfortunately for him, a “pure socialist” has arrived to expose his theoretical confusion.

Note: Some of the readers contacted me to discuss both the strong and the weak points of this article. As for now, there are a few structural, grammatical and technical errors in the essay, which I will revise soon. The current edition has some omissions that need clarification and further citation, without which it seems just as confused and false as Parenti’s exposition of “pure socialism.” The finalized edition will be available soon.
