Two sides of the same coin?
Interesting series, "Embracing a post-hierarchical socialism: On 'winning,' part 4":
Wanting to do something is no substitute for actually attempting the difficult and arduous task of developing political tactics and ideas that will, in fact, "do something". Just because someone is resisting "the system", for lack of a better descriptor, does not mean that their actions are productive, meaningful or correct. Most criminal behaviour, for example, is a function of social conditions that have created individuals that can only resort to crime in order to survive. That does not mean all criminal behaviour is, by definition, resistance against austerity.
Further, by refusing to move beyond the "politics of the street", these movements, by default, hand leadership and political power to "left" mainstream parliamentary parties or "revolutionary parties", (based, as we will see, around vanguardist ideas), that do, actually, have an agenda and set of ideas as to what they intend to accomplish; ideas which are principally centred around asserting and maintaining their own power.
Bold, persistent experimentation...
