The International Communist Current used to say that Internationalist Perspective had as many perspectives as it had members. The ICC  thought this tremendously witty, and saw the fact that IP often published articles disagreeing with other articles by other IP members as a sign of weakness. We saw it as a sign of strength that we could disagree, btu in fact we were joined around a common set of perspectives.

I’m reading McKenzie Wark’s book The Beach Beneath the Street on the Situationist International. At one ponit, Wark quotes Guy Deborg ‘s thought about the “line” of the organization:

Quite surely, never any doctrine; perspective. A solidarity around these perspectives.

Yeah, I’m down with that.
