Marx, Engels y el problema de la doble moral

22 March 2023

Se supone que ambos se oponían a aplicar a la lucha de clases los mismos principios éticos que suelen regular las relaciones entre individuos. De ahí la acusación de que ellos y sus discípulos (Lenin y Trotsky, entre otros) propugnaban el principio de que en la lucha de clases “el fin justifica los medios”.

In memoriam Arend van de Poel

7 January 2023

We mourn the loss of our friend and comrade Arend van de Poel. Arend (1948) passed away on January 4, 2023. He first became politically active in 1966 when he joined protests against the US war in Vietnam. He joined the independent Socialist Youth and some years later was a founding member of the Internationale Kommunisten Bond, the Dutch section of the Fourth International.

1983. Ernest Mandel: Marx, Engels and the problem of a double morality

27 November 2022

Marx and Engels have often been accused of advocating double standards, and having a double morality.1 Supposedly, they opposed applying the same ethical principles that usually regulate relations between individuals to the class struggle.
