Medicina revolucionaria / Revolutionary medicine

Seiji Yamada, Arcelita Imasa, Gregory Gabriel Maskarinec

Resumen


Este ensayo podría interpretarse como una especie de misiva en la línea de "An Appeal to the Young [Un llamado a los jóvenes]," de Kropotkin, desde viejos radicales que lograron poco hasta jóvenes radicales que deben lograr mucho. Pretendemos que nuestros comentarios sean preliminares, porque serán los jóvenes los que reconstruirán el mundo y, en el proceso, aprenderán mucho para enseñar a sus descendientes. Este ensayo se basa en las corrientes marxistas y anarquistas en su formulación de la medicina revolucionaria para la situación actual. Marx es necesario para su análisis del capitalismo, su materialismo histórico, para su teoría del valor trabajo, para su formulación de la historia como historia de la lucha de clases, para su énfasis en la praxis. El anarquismo es necesario por su odio al capitalismo, énfasis en la libertad, su desafío a la autoridad y su democracia radical.

Abstract

This essay might be construed as something of a missive in the vein of Kropotkin’s “An Appeal to the Young,"from old radicals who accomplished little, to young radicals who must accomplish much. We intend our remarks as preliminary, for it will be the young who will re-make the world, and in the process they will learn much to teach their descendants. This essay draws on both Marxist and anarchist currents in its formulation of revolutionary medicine for the current situation. Marx is necessary for his analysis of capitalism, his historical materialism, for his labor theory of value, for his formulation of history as the history of class struggle, for his emphasis on praxis. Anarchism is necessary for its hatred of capitalism, emphasis on freedom, its defiance of authority, and its radical democracy
