I should like to submit for discussion a theoretical analysis of the situation in which the radical movement ﬁnds itself today. I want to say from the beginning that I still consider the radical student movement and the Black and Brown militants as the only real opposition we have in this country. There is no other. Or, if there is, at least it remains concealed from me. I hope that the analysis I try to give you is indeed a Marxist analysis, if Marxism means more than regurgitating concepts that were elaborated a hundred years ago.
