From Carlos Pérez Soto

Even the claim as such of wanting to be a Marxist is today a political fact. Of course it is not obvious today that it would be sustainable to insist on this referent, neither politically nor theoretically. Many critical thinkers prefer to consider Marxism only as a source among others, in the reform area as well as in the more radical field. Many would prefer to think that the global capitalist stability and the defeat of real socialism only do allow reformist policies. Others would prefer to think that the revolutionary horizons may no longer be global, and must be restricted to direct and local action. Facing them, there are still, of course, those who prefer not to move from the basic coordinates of Marxism-Leninism, trying to develop and apply it "creatively" to our time. And then we're back in a situation, at least theoretically, similar to that of Lukacs.
