A LEFTIST PLEA FOR EUROCENTRISM PDF

However, is it possible to imagine a leftist appropriation of the European political legacy? Let us begin with the question, What is politics proper? The singulier universal is a group that, although without any fixed place in the social ediface or, at best, occupying a subordinated place , not only demands to be heard on equal footing with the ruling oligarchy or aristocracy that power but, even more, presents itself as the immediate embodiment of society as such, in its universality, against the particular power interests of aristocracy or oligarchy. This identification of the nonpart with the whole, of the part of society with no properly defined place or which resists its allocated subordinated place with the universal, is the elementary gesture of politicization , discernable in all great democratic events, from the French Revolution in which the Third Estate proclaimed itself identical to the nation as such against the aristocracy and clergy to the demise of European socialism , in which groups such as the Czech Civic Forum proclaimed themselves representative of the entire society against the party nomenklatura.
