Today, I've seen tweets indicating that the DSA is now up to 45,000 and
still growing.  It has been generations since so many Americans have joined
an organization self-described as "socialist."

One of the great mistakes the socialist movement (with a few exceptions)
made in my youth was to dismiss the SDS for its disorganized thinking about
electoral politics.  The place of socialists was to be in there making the
case for class politics.  And I don't mean this in a sectarian way.

As with the SDS, the real key involves actions beyond the electoral arena
that make subservience to the Democratic Party an increasingly obvious
contradiction.

Cheers,
Mark L.
