This talk was also very good – he deals concisely with the issue of the muslim brotherhood around 28 minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=US&feature=player_embedded&v=TXi7P4ddreM.

Am surprised by your reaction peter as you should know better that revolutions should be conceived as a protracted process, that don't move in straight lines and are very messy. Making sense of the messiness is surely one if our tasks. In terms of the Muslim brotherhood and the revolution there was a very nuanced talk by Phil marfleet at the Marxism festival last week and its available in cd and he has written on.thus in.the socialist review.

In the midst of depressing news from the MENA region, where the options seems to be between secular and religious authoritarian state forms (with low-intensity liberal democracy as the only alternative), I am feeling more and more the need to focus on the Commons (the source of Marx' concept of Communism). After all, this is about struggles that can be carried out today, carrying out social emancipation rather than waiting for the ever-postponed revolution. This looks like a lively discussion on the matter. I know I should make time for it:
Let us all know what you think? I'll try to get back on Debate after If and when I have carried out my commitment here.
