Marx & Women's Lib
- Two classic radical texts have been added to the BPS website:
INTRODUCTION TO A CRITIQUE OF HEGEL'S PHILOSOPHY OF RIGHT (Karl Marx, 1844)
THE TYRANNY OF STRUCTURELESSNESS (Jo Freeman, 1970)
The first is one of Marx's earliest and most brilliant writings. Among other
things, it's the source of "Religion is the opium of the people," "To be
radical is to grasp things by the root," "Practice must seek its theory,"
"Make shame more shameful still by making it public," and many other phrases
later taken up by the situationists.
The second is an influential examination of the manipulative tendencies that
are often hidden within apparently "structureless" organizations. It was
originally addressed to the early women's liberation movement, but its
insights continue to apply to present-day radical groups and activities.
