Inspired by some recent posts on Kasama Project, we thought we would share a video version of Carl Sagan’s Baloney Detection Kit. One of the great advancements of Marxism over previous forms of utopian socialism was its insistence on the use of the scientific method in the examination of social and material reality and the development of revolutionary theory. Many previous Party-building movements forgot this principle and instead relied on inherited theories, issued polemics and promoted strategies disconnected from concrete conditions and made gross errors in logic and rhetoric in their criticisms of other groups. In this round of struggle we need to do better.
