Reading the article on the Risly riot in 1986 I noted there was no mention of the four remand prisoners who received 60 days loss of remission' I was one of the remand prisoners who lost 60 days and it was my cell the other prisoners used to gain access to 6 landing. I would like to hear from anybody on this subject.

Hi I'd like to post an article replying to an article in the Jacobin about market socialism.

And I suppose other articles I have yet to post elsewhere.

hi, is your article in favour of market socialism, or against? (You've been approved BTW)

Well it's sympathetic but the proposal claims market socialism will eliminate profit and I claim it doesn't.

And thanks!

Hi -
I wanted to know if I could post up a discussion article on Keynes and Military Keynesianism, I presume in the "theory" section. It should go something like this:
In the New Republic, July 1940, Keynes wrote: “It is, it seems, politically impossible for a capitalist democracy to organise expenditure on the scale necessary to make the grand experiment which would prove my case – except in war conditions…If the United States takes seriously the material and economic side of the defence of civilisation and steels itself to a vast dissipation of resources in the preparation of arms, it will learn its strength – and learn it as it can never learn it otherwise; learn a lesson that can be turned to account afterwards to reconstruct a world which will understand the first principles governing the production of wealth…War preparation, so far from requiring a sacrifice, will be the stimulus, which neither victory nor defeat of the New Deal could give you to greater individual consumption and a higher standard of life…”
Given that the explicit ideology of many of the current struggles want to return to some kind of Keynesian welfare state, it seems important to note that in the past capitalism developed such a form, or the promise of it, as a method of fighting World War ll (as well as a method of co-opting the potentially dangerous class struggle that many thought would arise out of such a war, just as it had previously at the end of World War l).
In current circumstances such a class war may well arise before such a war and such a war, though almost certainly far more destructive than WWll, could well attempt to persuade the working class to accept it on the basis of an apparent welfare state pot of gold which would be found at the end of it, which sections of capital, or even those who wish to become a future ruling class, would give as the aim of such a conflict. Of course, other rationales might be given - such as a Malthusian need to cut down over-population, but Keynesianism seems like it could make some kind of comeback.
Or is this without any material basis whatsoever? Any thoughts?

Thank you Steven! Greatly appreciated! Is it possible to also blog since some of my things are not News per se and would be better in the blog section so as to keep the News separate. Thank you in advance! Solidarity!

I request the rights to post content for a person with the handle "Lines", as well as the undoing of their banishment from this site which was without good reason. If there's any confusion in finding that account or contacting that person I will try to resolve it on my end.

I sent an e-mail already, but found this thread and thought I would post here as well. I have posted articles in the past, and don't remember getting any permission, but maybe this is an issue this time around. In any case, I was trying to post an article of mine (in the library) and I was unable to see a preview, so I just stopped there. It would just go to libcom.org/node when I clicked on the full preview title. Is this due to a lack of permission, or is this some other issue?

Hi, unfortunately that is an issue with the site redesign. Previewing articles is currently broken. You have permission to post articles. Please feel free to post it without previewing and if it's a bit broken you can edit and fix. And we can help. Cheers

Thanks! It turned out alright, with just a few minor problems in my code. I submitted changes for some forgotten italicizations... the only thing that baffled me is why footnote #17 did something strange. Any help with that would be appreciated.
