Response to Are there still Eurocommunists?


The belief that the states and parties which emerged, directly or indirectly, from the October revolution had the potential to develop towards socialist democracy was probably the main thing which distinguished eurocommunists from left social democrats. That distinction is now irrelevant. There are still some CPs from eurocommunism's heyday (PCF, PCE) that retain the communist name and imagery, but in fact they function as social-democratic parties. In their turn, the PS and PSOE seem to have lost what little vestigial socialism they once had.
