Essay critique:Communists in the west and their internal struggles
This relationship between the Western Marxist movement and Christianity is profoundly discussed in Losurdo's book Il marxismo occidentale: Come nacque, come morì, come può rinascere (English: Western Marxism: How it was born, how it died, and how it can be reborn, as far as I know, there's no English translation of this book unfortunately).
Even though the essay seems to speak from the perspective of someone living in a core imperialist country, some of the problems described can include Brazil, which may not be a core imperialist country, but has a considerable labor aristocracy to the point it can be considered a "semi-periphery" according to Immanuel Wallerstein's analysis, or a sub-imperialist country according to Ruy Mauro Marini's reading of Brazil's historical conditions, which is the analysis I tend to incline towards when talking about Brazil. — Comrade FelipeForte (talk) 01:27, 7 October 2021 (UTC)
- Do note that Ruy Mauro Marini does not consider having a "labor aristocracy" a precondition of being considered a sub-imperialist country, like my wording unfortunately suggests. Ruy Mauro Marini considers Brazil a sub-imperialist country because it is a dependent economy in the monopoly and finance capital stage. — Comrade FelipeForte (talk) 02:01, 7 October 2021 (UTC)
