Are there any of your positions that have changed through all these years, and are there others which historical developments have proved true ?
An important point has been confirmed by the last twenty or thirty years: "crisis" and impoverishment aren't enough to cause revolutionary attempts. Another point has been proved wrong: unlike what we expected, the world growth of the wage system does not necessarily entail proletarianisation. Because of the increased industrialisation of ex-under-developed countries, from Mexican maquiladoras to Chinese sweatshops, there are more and more proles, but without the emergence of a proletarian movement. Theory can only understand change. Being part of a "vanguard" means being as little behind as possible.
