Ralph Miliband and Sons

Most readers will likely want to pass this up but a few, and perhaps more than a few, may enjoy reading three stories to which I link below.

If you are following the campaign for the Labour Party leadership, you would be aware that the two leading candidates, David and Ed Miliband, are brothers and the sons of the late Marxist intellectual Ralph Miliband.

This contest between siblings prompts retired British academic John Gray, once a favored scholar of many American conservatives and libertarians, to discuss the checkered history and cloudy future of leftist political ideology. And this in turn prompts Marxist author and blogger Richard Seymour to engage with John Gray.
