    Again, really enjoyed the article. Can you tell me how Marx’s analysis on Ireland might be extended to the “Limerick Soviet” or “Baby Soviet” in Ireland during the Irish Revolt in 1919 when Sinn Féin Lord Mayor of Limerick, Phons O’Mara demanded that called for the strike to end, and the Strike Committee issued a proclamation on 27 April 1919 stating that the strike was over. Just curious about a Marxist Humanist analysis of this. Would this be presaged by the analysis in the 18th Brumaire where Marx nails the reasons for the failure of the proletariat to limit the forces of reaction unleashed by Napleon the Third
