UFO-Trotskyism

Post by W.N on Fri Mar 06, 2015 6:29 pm

There was a Trotskyite sect, that also was a UFO-cult. The so called "Posadists", after Juan Posadas.
Have you ever heard about it before?  And what do you think about it?

Yes, I'm aware of the Posadists.

What is there to say, really? They were imbeciles. Conspiratorial thinking isn't a uniquely right-wing phenomenon.

No, I wasn't aware of them, but it would not surprise me if such a clique existed, what with the left being in a deplorable state for decades. I don't find it any more bizarre and asinine than eco-feminist anarchists who believe in ancient matriarchies and goddess worship, left-associated punk rock bands that pull juvenile stunts in the name of feminism and gay rights because they think it will make a difference in their country, or other silly conspiratorial thinking on the left. It does reflect poorly on Trotskyism that some of its adherents fall into that category, but one can probably also find at least one example of a self-described Marxist-Leninist group that espouses similar nonsense.

I am amused by the title of the thread, though. I assume you are not a fan of old Trotsky and his "Trotskyite" legacy. I don't mind that. In my opinion, Trotskyists have done more harm than good to the international communist movement.

Of course, it wasn´t possible for me to post any links. But google wiki "Juan Posadas" or "Fourth International - Posadist", or the homepage of this organisation.

Perhaps we can call these a Trotskyite version of "David Icke".   May also wonder if Trotsky himself had any views concerning UFO, was he ever interested in this?
On the otherhand at the posadist homepage, there´s really a lot of articles, and some really interesting.
