In response to Kathy Gyngell: Marxism is alive and well – and marching under the Tory banner, Nick Muir wrote:
Brilliant article and long overdue. In fact any serious scholar will know that the observation that gender is a bourgeois construct was originally made by Trotsky, and that the right of workers to self identify as the gender they themselves choose was a key Transitional Demand taken from the very foundation document of the Fourth International. The demands relating to gay marriage, and equal representation and pay for women at all levels of the party and the workforce, are also overlooked. Hidden among the more widely publicised ones about arming the workers and nationalising the banks. Trotsky knew exactly how to undermine western Judaeo-Christian civilisation. Bravo Kathy. If he were alive today he would be a Tory remainer, gnawing at the very cords that secure the will of the people to our cowardly and failing government.
