Dear Professor Wolff, I have 2 questions and was hoping you would answer one or the other, if not both (one can only dream). 1) Has "western Marxist" theory veered away from traditional class analysis, what has the effect been on the labor movement and might that have had anything to do with American intelligence agencies post-ww2 anti-soviet activity, or the influence of the Frankfurt school on the western left, as it too veered towards anti-soviet discourse priming over the importance of anti-capitalism? I ask this because of the known and documented ties between founding member fo the Frankfurt school and the upper echelons of the OSS which as you probably know, got the name change and charter to become the CIA in 1947- 2) Would you talk about little bit about the antagonisms between the working classes and the unemployed in their respective points of conflict and how we might bridge them in pursuit of a new labor movement? Sincerely, Josquin Dejean from Class Action Praxis, the collective behind the currently running "Anti-Trump Girl Takes Punch For Labor" GoFundMe campaign. https://www.facebook.com/ClassActionPraxis/ https://www.gofundme.com/3nj1iqg http://www.socialmatter.net/2016/08/25/frankfurt-school-not-cause-progressivism/ https://nithgrim.wordpress.com/2016/05/19/marcuse-and-the-deep-state/
Making the left an organized affair centered around reclamation of the workplace again.
