This quote recently appeared in the Opel exchanges - possibly from Rakesh or Jurriaan- around June 21 - could anyone tell me exactly where this came from?


Paul Bullock 

"What was the year 1929 in the USA and the year 1931 in Germany and England if not a giant breakdown? The working class was not prepared for this. It did not have a Lenin, who awaited and worked towards such a moment. Rather, for decades it heard from Hilferding and Helene Bauer that a breakdown was impossible. Only such a disorientation of the working class made it possible for the ruling class to overcome the panic and to survive the breakdown."
