Is this the origin of Jezza's ideas? I was myopically attributing them to rose-tinted nostalgia of 1970/80s industry struggles.
Corbyn and Milne both follow Cold War era liberationist theory and anti-Western nationalism; All Western intervention and advancement through international institutionalism (EU, NATO for eg) is seen as imperialist expansion responsible for world poverty and the global power imbalance. While those, whether state actors or 'freedom fighters,' that stand as a bulwark against this trend are seen as legitimate responses to imperialism. Or worth fellow travelling with. All this is gobbledegook to Millenials in Momentum and its not surprising they believe Corbyn accused of laying wreaths for terrorists who machine gun Olympic athletes in cold blood is a hoax. Basically these two are still 1968 students although Jez left college after reading 10 pages of Satre and giving up.
