24 February 2018. What Is To Be Done?

________________________

I see many posts in socialist groups like this:

There are 50,000 people in this group… what if just 10,000 of us organised… imagine that!

Or other variations of the same sentiment. The only problem is that we don’t know if those people are actually workers, we don’t know what their motivation or mode of survival is… how could that make a productive union?

I’m not so much encouraged by the prospect of 10,000 of us banding together with ill-formed internet goals than I’m encouraged by the prospect of what’d happen if those 10,000 radicalised their workplaces, educating and boosting the morale of workers actively engaged in the struggle of wage slavery, people whose lives would improve should a socialist revolution take place. That’s what’s required for a workers’ revolution, workers in a workers’ environment, living in constant antithesis to the hierarchy of our parasitic economy.

Go to work. Be the most intelligent, helpful, productive, firm, courageous, stable, and dedicated worker you can be. Move up through high performance and always assert your importance to the workplace, demonstrate workers’ confidence, confidence in your contribution. Do this not for the surplus value of the boss but to embolden your fellow worker. They’d remember that the kindest, greatest, and hardest worker that they ever met was a Marxist Socialist and they’d know you have their back with the whole of the potency you brought to the workplace. Embolden your fellow worker and they’d rise up, they just need to see.

17 March 2016. Socialism HONOURS Mothers…

00 Socialism honours our mothers. 170316

______________________________

To hear the likes of John Whiteford and Rod Dreher, one would think that socialism is mindless totalitarianism and grinding poverty. I disagree. Socialism is the fire of Eugene V Debs… socialism is the cool ardour of Norman Thomas… socialism is Jack Layton‘s passion… socialism is the social redistributionism of FDR… socialism is Bernie Sanders‘ vision. Socialism is the real working-man Gus Hall, who was more Joe Six-Pack than Joe Stalin… socialism is the thirst for social justice of Aneurin Bevan and Paul Robeson. Do NOT listen to rightwing lies about socialism. The “conservatives” believe that “winning is the only thing” and that a lion’s share of our resources belong to the rich. You can vote for Bernie or you can vote for Chilly Hilly and Trump the Chump. Yes, there is a real choice between good and evil this year…

Good Sense on Bernie from the Commies

00 bernie we're in earnest 261015

______________________________

Overall, there’ve been two distinct trends of response by the political left to [Bernie Sanders]… cautious embrace and open hostility. The dividing line seems to put all the usual suspects on their respective sides, with Communists using the campaign as another opportunity for anti-monopoly coalition-building with soft-socialist groups like the DSA (Sanders’s most closely associated “socialist” organization) tagging along, while ultra-left microparties stand on the sidelines denouncing the CPUSA for its revisionism and liberalism in staining its hands with the filth of bourgeois politics. All of this was very predictable.
