"Within [the] loose but top-down [France Insoumise, LFI], a debate has started on how to develop democratic structures, ... This is not what Mélenchon and other elected officials of [LFI] want, their immediate goal being access to the government."

Irish socialist James Connolly said that the job of a socialist in elected office is to be a disturber of the political peace. That captures the essential difference between what we believe our working class representatives should be and what we have in the Democratic Party.

"Of course the method of presentation must differ in form from that of inquiry. The latter has to appropriate the material in detail, to analyse its different forms of development, to trace out their inner connexion. Only after this work is done, can the actual movement be adequately described. If this is done successfully, if the life of the subject-matter is ideally reflected as in a mirror, then it may appear as if we had before us a mere a priori construction."

Following the devastating loss of John Molyneux last weekend, reflects on the incalculable contribution John made to the socialist movement.

"In studying such transformations it is always necessary to distinguish between the material transformation of the economic conditions of production, which can be determined with the precision of natural science, and the legal, political, religious, artistic or philosophic – in short, ideological forms in which men become conscious of this conflict and fight it out."

We're glad the NPC has now promised to host a DSA-wide call to reflect on the rail contract. We hope it will be an actual forum for debate on our organization's electoral strategy, as requested by Seattle DSA’s petition.

Every worker should have the right to strike for a better quality of life and workplace conditions.

Letter to NPC on the need for a town hall to hold accountable for voting to ban the railroad strike. We need a serious debate on how to change our electoral strategy to ensure this doesn't happen again 🌹✊🌍

Today a boss attempted to illegally fire a member.... but backed out at the last minute when confronted by community !

"The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it."

Marxism is above all a method of analysis—not analysis of texts, but analysis of social relations.

I would say the point [of socialists running for office] is to use the platform to connect with the class by the millions, to raise its expectations, confidence, and ability. Can win big reforms but not likely thru backroom deals and horsetrades as a junior partner to the liberal section of the capitalist class

Socialists are not on the alert for some mythical Moses to lead them into a fabled promised land, nor expect any “great man” to sacrifice himself upon the altar of the country for their salvation. They have made up their minds to be their own leaders and to save themselves.

The call from Seattle DSA is for the NPC to call a public town hall with railway workers to discuss this vote, inviting the electeds to attend. I urge folks to sign the petition and bring this to their chapters!

Should socialists support or oppose NATO governments sending weapons and military aid to the Ukrainian government?
