Stealing from socialists
Over at Socialist Unity there is a good discussion about electoral politics, non-electoral politics, and Elaine Brown's resignation from the Green Party. Personally I think the entire thing is worth a click, but here's a "teaser" for ya.
The recent resignation of Elaine Brown from the United States Green Party makes it necessary to examine how minority parties can achieve progress in circumstances where electoral success is excluded. In the context of the US electoral system, for the Green party to pursue the logic of mainstream electability would be disastrous, but does that mean they cannot achieve anything?
