Building Strong Branches

Socialism 2017

August 15, 2017

Building a socialist organization in the “belly of the beast” is no easy task. It requires regularly planned, well-organized meetings, tablings, and sales of our newspaper and literature to “get the word out.” It means reading, studying, and debating the Marxist and radical theory and tradition in order to deepen our understanding of the present and develop a perspective about what we should do next. It also means working out plans to initiate and involve ourselves in the struggles of today, in order to advance those struggles and attract more people to our cause. These activities require regular reassessment so that we can learn from both our successes and mistakes. In short, it involves both a sense of strong organizational routine and political flair for taking advantage of new opportunities for struggle and growth.
