Abstract

Bhima Koregaon is that rare sequence in Indian politics today that can challenge reveal the true powers of being able to retroactively "change the past" in order to liberate the future, much in the manner of Marx's historical materialism. The case, Saroj Giri writes, forces us to revisit the question of historical oppression based on caste from within the present, and beckons us to reject the capitalist accelerationist-futurist "progressive politics" of much of the left, taking us closer to the class struggle of Marx.
