The Question of the State – La Guerre Sociale

This article from La Guerre Sociale No.2, March '78, was based on one written by Dauvé, who did not wish to become directly involved with LGS, but offered two texts for possible inclusion and said they could do as they wished with the texts. It was rewritten without Dauvé's participation – "completed, drastically cut and profoundly corrected and revised" according to LGS, but they also stated about 70% of the result was from Dauvé's original article. Dauvé declined to be cited on the article and also reportedly stated that his views about the state were better expressed in an introduction he wrote to a collection of articles from the '30s left communist journal 'Bilan'.
