I think there’s a leftist assumption that most ordinary people are “not yet part of the audience who would realistically be receptive to us.”
I think this is horseshit, I think it’s a cop-out of facing our current situation:
- We have a population whose frustration has reached a fever pitch at the constant downgrading of its economic standard of living.
- This population, while angry, has highly mixed consciousness. It will lash out at any target which someone places in front of it.
- Still, the US majority leans toward sympathy for leftism and “socialistic” policies, if not systemic change — but systemic change is increasingly popular too.
- Though angry and left-sympathetic, the population is still horribly unorganized. Action has not matched sentiment because we haven’t built a machine for people to rally around.
- The Left might as well seize these awesome opportunities. American politics is up for the taking for whoever will do it.
- If the US population’s mass-anger remains unchanneled by the Left, it can quickly turn reactionary, ranging anywhere in severity from the US 1980s best-case to the German 1930s worst-case. (I’m thinking 80s.)
- Therefore, we can-and-must seize these opportunities to create a nationally-coordinated fightback and a new electoral formation.
- We should do these things even if we have to be rushed and artificial about it, and pull them out of our ass.
If a group or person still has low expectations or low ambitions at this juncture, they should be abandoned, ignored, or otherwise bypassed. Moment-seizers, let’s get together.
