From I read the following

The position of the great Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky is mirrored in the latest summary by the Israeli Zionist writer Caroline Glick. Let us pause for a momento to digest what Glick says about the realities facing Israel today. She ends her latest article like this:

To a degree, all of Netanyahu’s seemingly unjustifiable actions can be justified when weighed against the need to avoid a confrontation with America.
But by now, after five years, with Iran having passed Israel’s red line, and with chemical weapons already in play in Syria, the jig is up.
Obama does not have Israel’s back.
Contrary to the constant, grinding rhetorical prattle of American and Israeli politicos, Obama will not lift a finger to stop Iran from becoming a nuclear power. He will not lift a finger to prevent chemical weapons from being transferred to the likes of al-Qaida and Hezbollah, and their colleagues in Syria, or used by the Syrian regime.
From Benghazi to Boston, from Tehran to Damascus, Obama’s policy is to not fight forces of jihad, whether they are individuals, organizations or states. And his obsession with Palestinian statehood shows that he would rather coerce Israel to make concessions to Palestinian Jew-haters and terrorists than devote his time and energy into preventing Iran from becoming the jihadist North Korea or from keeping sarin, VX and mustard gas out of the hands of Iran’s terrorist underlings and their Sunni competitors.
No, Israel doesn’t want a confrontation with Washington. But we don’t have any choice anymore.
The time has come to take matters into our own hands on Syria and Iran. In Syria, either Israel takes care of the chemical weapons, or if we can’t, Netanyahu must go before the cameras and tell the world everything we know about Syria’s chemical weapons and pointedly demand world – that is US – action to secure them.
As for Iran, either Israel must launch an attack without delay, or if we can’t, then Netanyahu has to publicly state that the time for diplomacy is over. Either Iran is attacked or it gets the bomb.

themarxistblog is at variance with Glick over her position on Syria. Let us pause first to try to elucidate the respective positions on Syria.

themarxistblog says that it is a principle that Israel lines up with Assad against the Jihadist Muslims who are backed by Cameron and Obama, that is the Jihad as backed by US and British Imperialisms.

We say furthermore that this does not imply for a second that Israel does not strike against Assad, and against the forces of Assad, if it sees Assad engaging in attacks against Israel. In other words Israel acts if necessary in whatever way but acts always from a position of Independence.

Glick cannot for whatever reason take this position. This leaves her in a position of ambivalence in relation to the Imperialist backed Jihad against Assad.

I think this is fatal for Jews.

Contrary to this we say there can be no ambivalence. No matter about the Antisemitism of Assad, whatever about that, in this war he must be defended.

We say furthermore that the issue of Iran, Hamas and Hizbullah is separate and must be kept separate. Israel must immediately quite apart from Assad (defence of Assad) strike with full available forcé to destroy the Iranian Nuclear Bomb. That is an existential issue for Israel and is urgent.

Things are not as they seem. By NOT defending Assad against the Jihad Glick is sort of saying that there is still some mileage in being on the side of Obama and Cameron against Assad.

So having said STILL AND ALL BECAUSE OF THE DEMANDS OF OBJECTIVE REALITY in the above words by Glick there is an acceptance that Israel acts immediately and independently.

Glick is saying this why? Because it is true. There is no other position to take.

The truth and reality is that Obama will enver attack Iran and if Iran is not stopped Iran will stop Israel, meaning it will continue the Nazi Holocaust, in which the Arabs and Islam world were fully involved through the well known role of Muftí Husseini.

Israel is really at war right now. Obama is sighing in the ear of Israel “No you are not really at war at all. You are delusional for thinking you are at war”.

What Obama is therefore saying is that Iran is really a peaceful teddy bear and that it is NOT pursuing the Nuclear Bomb, and even if it is do not worry.

The great majority of Israeli people now realice this and they realise that Netanyahu will either fight now or Israel will lose.

It reminds me very much of the situation in Russia in the middle of 1916. The workers KNEW that if its leadership, the Bolsheviks, did not ACT then it that objective situation would rapidly change against them the workers.

The pressure being placed by the workers in Russia in those months on their leadership, the Bolshevik Party, so much so that the Bolshevik Party split on what to do. There developed a compromiso section around Stalin and Kamenev who wished to hold back from the struggle for state power.

In those conditions the struggle to ACT became key. The struggle to ACT and against those who would allow the situation to DRIFT became all consuming.

This is what Caroline Glick is saying in her last sentence above. The time for f..king with Obama is over.

It is horrible to have to say it but Israel once more just has to fight with all it has got. As a gentile I wish that was not so, but unfortunately it is so 

So somehow the concept that Trotsky was fighting for…to not believe in force is like not believing in gravity…is the key concept that has to enter into the soul of every Jew and every Jewish supporter, so many years later.

Of course there may be some immature Jews who on hearing the name of Trotsky in this argument become all hateful to us and all I can say to them is for goodness sake grow up! themarxistblog is not going away.

themarxistblog in these pages is closer to the Jews tan anybody on the planet. This is what lies behind the booing by Jewish patriots of the compromiser Alan Dershowitz yesterday. Dershowitz is scared witless at jewish acting independently…



The anti-Jihadist blogger Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs summed it up best

More of that moderate Islam that the West can’t seem to get enough of…


The essence of the situation is that the Sharia Fatwa was issued not by any old big-mouthed Iman but by The Supreme Ulema Council of Morocco, and this Supreme Council is headed by the King himself, with which the nearby King of Spain has the closest and friendlies relations. What will the Spanish do now? Perhaps cowardly silence!



Morocco Fatwa Demands Death Sentence For Christian Converts BOS News (thanks to Andrew Bostom) 


RABAT,MOROCCO (BosNewsLife)– Christian converts in Morocco feared for their future Thursday, April 25, after the country’s highest Islamic institute issued a fatwa demanding the death penalty for Muslims who renounce their religion.


The Supreme Ulema Council of Morocco (CSO), a body of Islamic scholars headed by King Mohammed VI, said that Muslims who reject their faith “should be condemned to death.”  CSO is the only institution entitled to issue ‘fatwas’, or religious decrees, in Morocco.

The ministry of Islamic affairs declined to comment on the issue.



The fatwa dates back to April 2012 when a legal report was prepared by the government, but it wasn’t published at the time, according to local media.


Mahjoub El Hiba, a senior human rights official in the Moroccan government, denied to reporters that the government received a fatwa on “apostasy” — the word used for abandoning Islam — as the Arabic-language daily Akhbar al-Youm had claimed.



The different statements could not be immediately reconciled, but local Christians expressed concern about the situation, saying it could lead to a new crackdown on the country’s tiny Christian community of some 22,000 people.


“There’s a lot of confusion and discussion in Morocco right now about the fatwa,” said a pastor near the city of Marrakech in a statement distributed by advocacy group International Christian Concern (ICC). “We fear that if the fatwa is approved, the government will use it to harass us and even arrest us during our meetings,” the church leader added, speaking on condition of anonymity.


“The [Islamic] fundamentalists will have an excuse to harm us,” the pastor reportedly said.

I remember having an argument with Jewish man Maurice Boland then of Talk Radio Europe on this very issue, where I argued against Boland who said that the King of Morocco was a “great guy”, and Boland called me on air a “radical”, which could mean anything. In any case I argued whatever about the King being “liberal” the issue was the hold which Islam had over the Arab people as a whole. That is what was and is decisive.


Now in Morocco we have a new twist which is bound to have a major effect of life in Morocco, and directly on next-door Spain, which has within its population great numbers of Arabs, and especially of Moroccans, and it is open to question just how many of these are Salafists.


The Spanish people as a majority hate the Moroccans and keep their distance from the Arabs in general. The Spanish elites, or ruling capitalist classes, especially and above all the pro-Islam PSOE who are Labour Party types, and the IU who are part of the historical Stalinist movement with so many crimes associated with its history, block this rightful hatred of the Spanish towards the Arabs.


But there is no way forward for the Spanish through all of these ruling elites, because even the conservative PP, which would be the equivalent of Cameron´s Tories, are also part of the embrace of Islam, and embrace of the Arabs, because they the Spanih elite above all else in the world worship Arab money.


There are actually outstanding and ever-present examples of this, in their face every day of the week, of the role of Arab money. Spain is football mad, and on the shirts of the Barcelona players, like the famous Messi, is written in large capitals “Qatar Foundation”, while a Qatar Sheikh owns outright the Spanish club Malaga. I have watched over the past year or so as the radio station owned by a Jewish man Martin Nathan, and run by a Steven Gilmour, has struck a close relationship with the Malaga Football Club. The radio station is called “Talk Radio Europe” and is a commercial station.


This latest piece of Sharia in nearby Morocco is going to have a dramatic effect on Christians in Morocco. As Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer among others are continually pointing out the penalty for a Muslim leaving Islam and joining another Faith, say becoming a Christian, is death by beheading. But this Fatwa bad and all that it is has a habit of morphing into beheading of Christians and Jews who are just that and never were Muslims.


Now consider for a moment how this influential radio station Talk Radio Europe deals with Islam and Sharia. It has a continual guest on a discussion programme chaired by Gilmour, an American woman and ex-cop, a certain Mrs Thomas, who tells the world that Islam means “Peace”, and that Islam is really really a religion of peace, echoing that idiot Bush Junior who said just that as he stood in the cinders of 9-11.


There is more, though. On the radio station is a television clerical combo, called the “Two Revs” (No I am not making this up!)


These two revs guys belong to something called the Elim Pentecostal Church and they have an hour long programme, and it feels it, every Sunday in which they do two things: they ignore the great persecution of Christians in the world at the hand of Sharia; they propose only faith in Jesus Christ. In other words the “two revs” ignore the world and advance dogma…very convincing!


One of these “two revs” a man called David Hodgson also runs a programme every afternoon of a couple of hours per day. This character dave from Derby is noted for wanting to publicise only good stories on his interminable show, and very quickly reduces to the banal.


In any case I digress a little, but not really, because remember that Spain is within spitting distance of Morocco, and do not forget for a moment that a large Arab Moroccan clientele who thanks to Zapatero and the PSOE are full Spanish citizens, clamouring more and more for the building of a network of mosques in the land of flamenco and gypsy music. The Spanish natives will hate this and fight against this, but short of a revolution they cannot win against the Spanish Arab-loving conservative class rulers, while the Stalinist IU and the Labourist PSOE are conclusively in bed with Islam, Zapatero once incidentally showing this by wearing the Palestinian Arab Jihadist and Jew Hating scarf at a function. Idiot!


Very interested to know what Gilmour and TRE say about the Moroccan Fatwa against Christians. Gilmour is a Christian Catholic himself from Scotland. Perhaps, who knows,  very little. By the presenters that he chooses on his and Martin Nathan´s station it is clear that Gilmour aims for a vacuous, anti-political and anti-theoretical agenda.

Will keep you informed…

Victims of logging and fire

Orangutans share a preference with humans for fertile alluvial plains and lowland valleys – a habitat once rich in tropical forests but now being replaced with logging and agricultural concessions.   Each of the two orangutan species is found only on the island from which it derives its name: Sumatra or Borneo. With numbers having fallen drastically over the past century and human pressures increasing, orangutans may be lost from the wild forever within a few decades.

Physical description 

The orangutan is the world’s largest tree-climbing mammal. The animals have a characteristic ape-like shape, shaggy reddish fur and grasping hands and feet. Their long armsvery long arms that can reach as much as 2 meters in length. Orangutans’s legs are relatively short and weak, but their hands and arms are powerful.
There are 2 different types of adult male orangutan: “flanged” & “unflanged”. Flanged males have a long coat of dark hair on their back, a facial disk, flanges and a throat sac used for “long calls”. The unflanged male looks like an adult female. Both reproduce and an unflanged male can change to a flanged male for reasons that are not yet fully understood. Orangutans are the only primate in which this biological phenomenon occurs.
Size: 1.25-1.5m in length;  females weigh 30-50kg, males weigh 50-90kg
Colour: Reddish brown

The ‘man of the forest’

Orangutans live in primary and secondary forests. Although they can occur up to 1,500 meters above sea level, most are found in lowland areas and prefer forests in river valleys or floodplains.
Orangutans travel about by moving from one tree to another, and usually avoid climbing down to the ground – although there are differences between the two species. When on the ground, they move on “all fours”, with clenched fists placed on the ground.
Orangutans make a nest of vegetation to sleep in at night, and rest in smaller nets during the day to rest. Social structure Adult orangutans are generally solitary, although temporary aggregations  are occasionally formed. The large home ranges of males overlap with the  ranges of several adult females. Adult males are generally hostile to  one another, although they do not display territoriality.  Life cycle Orangutans usually give birth to a single young, or occasionally twins. 
After weaning at about 3.5 years of age, young individuals become  gradually independent of their mother after she gives birth to a second  young. 
Orangutan females first reproduce at around 10-15 years of age, depending on the species/subspecies. Females give birth probably not more than once every 5 years, and the interbirth interval can be as long as 10 years. The long time taken to reach sexual maturity, the long interbirth  periods, and the fact that orangutans normally give birth to just a  single young mean that orangutans have an extremely low reproductive  rate. This makes orangutan populations highly vulnerable to excessive  mortality, and means that populations take a long time to recover from  population declines.  Diet About 60% of the orangutan’s diet includes fruit (e.g. durians,  jackfruit, lychees, mangosteens, mangoes and figs), while the rest  comprises of young leaves and shoots, insects, soil, tree bark, woody  lianas, and occasionally eggs and small vertebrates. They obtain water  not only from fruit, but also from tree holes. 

Population & distribution

Previous population & distribution Pleistocene fossil records in southern China, northern Vietnam, Lao PDR, and Java indicate that the genus once had a  wide distribution in Southeast Asia.
Orangutans are now only found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, with populations on each island belonging to separate species. A century ago there were probably more than 230,000 orangutans worldwide.
Current population & distribution Both orangutan species have experienced sharp population declines over the past few decades.
Their dense forest homes make it difficult to precisely determine population sizes, however the Bornean orangutan is estimated to number about 41,000 individuals, while the Sumatran orangutan is estimated to number about 7,500 individuals.

What are the main threats?

Habitat loss Habitat destruction and fragmentation is by far the greatest threat to orangutans.
Huge tracts of forest have been cleared throughout the their range, through legal and illegal logging and forest conversion for oil palm plantations and other agriculture. Fires related to these activities also pose a serious threat to both orangutans and their habitat.
Today, more than 50% of orangutans are found outside of protected areas, in forests under management by timber, palm oil and mining companies. Hunting & illegal trade Orangutans are an easy target for hunters, being large and slow targets. 
The animals are killed for food in some areas, or in retaliation when they move into agricultural areas and destroy crops. This occurs more in times of environmental stress when orangutans can’t find the food they need in the forest.
Females in particular are most often hunted. When caught with offspring, the young are often kept as pets.
This pet trade is a major problem. It is thought that for each orangutan reaching Taiwan, as many as 3-5 additional animals die in the process. Recent enforcement of the law in Taiwan has reduced the importation of orangutans, but the trade remains a threat in Indonesia where there is still demand for orangutans as pets.
There is also trade in orangutan skulls in Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo).

The betrayal of the Jews by these bourgeois Zionist leaders is non stop. In our last article we have seen how Belman of Israpundit, Caroline Glick and debka are joining in with the Obama Jihad against Assad.

This is based on our opposition to the “evidence” of the IDF big Wheel General or Brigadier, or Brigadier General or whatever the hell he calls himself.

This Brun guy traitor to the Jews gave as his evidence against Assad the evidence of a PICTURE


Hey Brun remember the el Dura fraudery by the Arab Palestinian liars. You are doing just the same. the el Dura fraudery was based on the doctoring of a photograph as well. Did Obama and Hegel put you up to it? Are you an agent of Obama Brun?


So then if you are what about the position now of Belman, of Glick and of Debka!!!???


The bourgeois Zionist leadership of the Jews is rotten to the core. Note that we say “leadership”. Zionism is the national liberation of the Jewish people but it needs new and principled leadership.


It is possible that Assad used the nerve gas, just that Brun provided no evidence.


It is also posible that the Jihadists against Assad used it. There are 20 places where they could have got it, for example from Qatar.


Glick, Belman of Israpundit and debka, we cannot proceed in this manner. Quite simply you are liars and not prepared to look for evidence. Disgusting.


How the Israeli bourgeois leadership is getting ever deeper into bed with Obama is seen in the following from debka:


Israel and Turkey agreed last week to start pooling their incoming intelligence on the Syrian civil war, debkafile’s intelligence sources report exclusively. Exchanges will take place at the highest level between Mossad Director Tamir Pardo and Hakan Fidan, head of Turkey’s MIT.

The United States will also provide additional security for Syria’s southern neighbor by the relocation of US Patriot missile interceptors from West Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to northern Jordan opposite the Syrian border.

US Patriots were deployed on the Turkish-Syrian border last year.

The new Patriot deployment indicates that the Obama administration is now treating the peril to its allies from Syria as greater than the Iranian menace. Things are also on the move in the Turkish-Israeli arena. Advantage was taken of the Israeli delegation’s visit to Istanbul Monday, April 22, for negotiations on the amount of compensation to be paid out to the families of the nine Turks who died in a clash of arms with Israeli naval commandoes in May 2010, when their ship, the Mavi Marmara, was stopped from completing its mission to break Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip. As first reported by the last DEBKA-Net-Weekly, the negotiating session was brief. Criteria for determining the amounts of the payouts were settled in less than an hour. A joint Israeli-Turkish group is to calculate the sums and refer their estimates back to the delegations for approval.

The two delegations then got down to the brass tacks of the most pressing issues of interest to them both


This horrific selling out of the Jews of Israel by the Jewish bourgois around Netanyahu is mirrored in this sentence which we repeat for careful consideration:


Exchanges will take place at the highest level between Mossad Director Tamir Pardo and Hakan Fidan, head of Turkey’s MIT


Now keep in mind that this is the same Turkish MIT that was directly behind the Jihadist Mavi Marmora on which so much Antisemitic propaganda was based around


George Galloway must be licking his lips in delight at these awful betrayals of the Jewish cause by these pro Obama rulers of Israel.


The key question is Assad. Assad is a secularist and must be defended against the Jihad which is backed by US Imperialism in the same way that the Jihad against the Christian Serbs in Bosnia was backed and promoted by Clinton.

At stake in this are the lives of millions of Alawites and Christians in Syria. If the Jihadists win over Assad millions will die at the hands of the Jihad. And the threat to Israel massive.

Iran is separate so keep it separate. Israel must go to war against the Iranian Fascists and also aid the Iranian people to overthrow these Fascists. That time is long past. It should have been done by Israel years ago. Who held them back. their own traitors did as well as the American Imperialists (held them back)


themarxistblog states most forcefully that Jews must defend Assad against the Jihad. Note that this does not and never will imply that Israel lowers for a single second its guard against Assad, and against the chemical weapons which Assad owns. But the defence against the Fascist Jihad backed by Imperialism is unconditional and is a position of total principle.




Itai Brun the Brigadier General who spoke about Assad using nerve gas has to be looked at closely. This is from Times of Israel and relates to his claim:


Brun showed a photo of a child with narrowed pupils and foam coming out of his mouth. Both of these are indicative of a nerve agent, he said. But it’s safe to say he did not, in the age of Muhammad al-Dura, rely solely on the evidence provided by a picture. “From my 20 years of working at the research and analysis division (of military intelligence) I can assure you he would not go public based only on that,” said Dr. Dany Shoham, a senior research fellow at the Begin Sadat Center for Strategic Studies and an expert on Syrian chemical weapons.

Soil samples, Shoham said, which have reportedly been obtained by Britain and France, could provide somewhere between 60-100 percent indication of a nerve agent. A post mortem examination, he added, “could be very, very helpful.”

Hey Shoham stupid, you gonna rely on BRITISH evidence!!!

From this I take that Brun provided the only evidence, a picture.

So Brun was simply folowing int he footsteps of the el Dura fakery. Yet the whole of the bourgeois Zionist elite have not questioned this evidence of Brun against Assad.


I have looked at these sites


1. Caroline Glick is accepting Brun totally

2. Ted Belman of Israpundit as is usual for this person is keeping his head down and is saying nothing while others make the running for him

3. The very influential debka website is backing Brun completely and without the slightest question asked. As far as debka is concerned there simply is no doubt about it. Brun has spoken, showed a picture and that is that


To themarxistblog this all represents the complete deterioration of the bourgeois Zionist ideology.


Zionism itself is the Jewish national liberation movement. But it is led by the bourgeois Zionists who throw their national liberation struggle into great danger and crisis.


So we on themarxistblog say to these bourgeois Zionists, tell the truth or shut up. That is Belman of Israpundit, Caroline Glick and Debka tell the truth or shut up. You are a grave danger to the Jewish people and to the Jewish cause.


There was only the one strategic defence for Israel to take. That was for Israel to defend Assad against the Jihad backed by warmongerers like Obama and Cameron, for Israel to be independent of the US and be prepared to strike against Assad or Iran if they threaten Israel, BUT ACT INDEPENDENTLY, and act in defence of the Alawites and Christians of Syria, which is what Assad is all about.


In fact Israel did the opposite. Israel kept tied to the coat tails of Obama and the final and worst betrayal was that of a few days ago when the Israeli General stated that Assad was using chemical weapons, Sarin.


This treacherous action by this Israeli bureaucrat general has given the go ahead to Obama and Cameron to destroy Assad, destroy the Christians and Alawites who support Assad, and to place the worst Jihadists of all in power in Syria.


The policies of Israel can be summed up in two words, NO INDEPENDENCE


The very thing that Israel needs the most it lacks.


The present Israelí leadership is showing it cannot take a single step on its own. This places it in a most difficult situation as Obama, Cameron and the Jihad breaks up Syria.


The attacks on Syria goes hand in hand with the attacks on libertarians like Pamela Geller. The Muslim Brotherhood is crowing in delight at all of this.


The worst of it all is that Netanyahu and these leaders know very well the dangers the Jews are being thrown into but they are unable to act independently from Obama and Cameron.


So the following extract after the news that Israel having to down a Hizbullah drone yesterday shows he sees the dangers, but can and will do nothing.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said: “We take an extremely grave view of this attempt to violate our borders and will continue to guard them and keep our citizens safe.” He added, “We are watching events in Syria and Lebanon with extreme concern. Syria is breaking up and Lebanon is unstable. Both places pose not inconsiderable perils to Israel – two emanating directly from Syria. The first is the possible transfer of sophisticated weaponry to terrorist organizations and the second, attempts by terrorists to break through our borders and attack our towns and villages. Israel stands ready to counteract any threats from Syria or Lebanon by sea, air and land.”


In essence Netanyahu and the Israeli elite have thrown their lot in with the Jihadists in Syria, because they have thrown their lot in with Hagel, Obama and Cameron, AND AGAINST THE SECULAR ASSAD, and into the bargain they are betraying their Syrian Christian friends and potential friends in the Alawites. Iran is a totally separate issue. Israel has to urgently defend itself against the Iranian Facist Mullahs and their Nuclear Bomb aimed at Jews essentially. That means for Israel to declare war on the Iranian Fascists, not because we or Israel likes that, but because to survive as a people there is simply no alternative. But Netanyahu rather tan face that reality waits on Obama to help out. A long and fruitless wait!


In April 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick published their conclusion that
the structure of DNA was a double hélix
James Watson
James D Watson.jpg James Dewey Watson

James Dewey Watson (1928-04-06) April 6, 1928 (age 85) Chicago, Illinois, U.S. (picture Wikipedia)

Their paper was published in Nature on April 25, 1953 however the structure was discovered about 6 weeks earlier in the beginning of March.

The discovery of the doublé hélix as the “carrier” of DNA was the great discovery of our times, and equals with that in evolution of Charles Darwin, and in the pioneering work of Marx and Engels, who also examined in a new and above all scientific manner human society, especially the nature of capitalism, WHICH WAS BUT ONE ASPECT OF THIS MATTER IN MOTION.

We are in a period of deepening crisis of capitalism and yesterday was the 60th anniversary of the publication of the famou Crick/Watson paper. the anniversary is almost simultaneous with the Jihadist attack on defenceless people at the Boston Marathon.

The deepening and insoluble crisis in capitalism has led to a movement in the social sphere against science, which is represented by conspiracy theorising, about people on radio stations talking about angels, about the soul existing independent of many bodies, of the corruption of the thought of Einstein’s work and theory, who actually never said that everything was energy, rather that energy was one of the qualities of matter, and that the only constant and truth is matter in continual motion.

Our thoughts are a product of the material world, and before human beings appeared on this earth, there was matter in continual motion. Before there was thinking there was matter in motion. THOUGHT IS A PRODUCT OF MATTER AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

What is happening today is a corruption of science and of the scientific method. Crick and Watson did not impose their ideas onto reality, they rather studied reality and thereby advanced a hypothesis, that of the double helix. This was the same method of Darwin and Marx. It is also the method of materialism (dialectical). We start with the reality of matter in motion, and an understanding that our thoughts are a reflection of that matter in motion, at all times an imperfect understanding of that matter in motion. The key to that is that along this road we as humans can AND DO gain moments of absolute knowledge, and such a moment was that of Watson and Crick, made 60 years ago and published precisely 60 years ago yesterday. This method is totally opposed to the method of idealism, of relativism, whereby any old conspiracy theorist can spout off any old idealist rubbish that comes into his or her head.

The capitalist system internationally is rapidly driving towards Fascism as a method of their rule. In Spain one in three of men and women are unemployed and the capitalist system of Spain is unable totally to alter this reality. The return to Fascism is not necessarily as is often thought a return to Franco, why should it be, the crisis is far more insoluble, it can be a return to something far, far more extreme.

In this period we need a scientific method to guide what we think and do.

We honour the work of Crick and Watson.
