Socialists Lack a Big Picture and Process Scenarios For a Transition

This is a good, reflective article on the problems of Yankee socialism today. Gary Olson points to all the right places:
1) the lack of a big picture as to how to destroy the ruling class;
2) the lack of a step by step procedure for making a transition; and
3) the lack of mass party to carry things out.
On the positive side, not mentioned is the growth of worker-cooperatives as possible dual power forms. The existence of Labor Notes is important for coordinating all worker militancy around Yankeedom. Finally, the rising tide of worker strikes, along with refusals to go back to work is critical.
