A political movement without a shared analysis and sense of purpose is bound to flounder. National DSA could be stronger if it developed a shared understanding of the world and clearer political goals. By “putting politics first” we can start to build both.
Socialists should have nothing but scorn for the way that the corporate liberals and charlatans at the helm of the Democratic Party botched Tuesday’s midterm elections. Working people will suffer the consequences. The Left must offer a real alternative.
Democratic socialists believe that we can create a more just, egalitarian, and democratic society. But first we have to unite the working class in a broad movement that uses elections, workplace organizing, and mass mobilizations to break the power of the capitalist class.
