We can abandon most of the inheritance of the past Left in terms of organizational behaviors. We can simply make our own experiments and do what works. Socializing is a massive part of an organization’s real existence. We don’t need to require routines or practices which don’t translate in a certain locale. We need to brainstorm ways to meet people and work with people unique to our own local circumstances. Often running for office is a great way to doorknock and gather people. Some cities have a very active cultural life where social encounter is constant. Small town America often never encounters itself except in church, in charity and volunteer groups, in school sports, or during campaign season. Do what you have to do. Have fun, or make it fun. Be yourself. Meet people. Do it however you have to do it.
