As of lately, us from Marks21 have been in constant petty squabbles with Gerousia, a rival left-wing organization (named after the Spartan council of elders, even though most of them are in their twenties). They are pretty much hardcore Althusserians, and are thus much more academic, intellectual and theoretically oriented than we are - they believe that, since capitalism is unsustainable (which it is), a socialist revolution is absolutely bound to happen somewhere in the future, any revolutionary practice is in vain, and the only true revolutionary activity is revolutionary theory.
Which means that the only thing they do is sit in a smoky bar, get high, endlessly quote Althusser and Foucault and argue about questions of extreme importance, such as what is "more revolutionary" - space or time?
One of such sessions led to the brilliant idea of achieving some sort of a working-class catharsis through hip-hop.
This is what ensued.
