I think the problem in this country is that since 1936 the Popular Front,
when the Communists went into a coalition with the liberal bourgeoisie
against the fascists, has been the dominant policy on the Left. However,
since 1848 the traditional principle of socialist politics was class
independence from the capitalists. The so-called “socialists” in this
country have forgotten that. They don’t know that they’re continuing the
Popular Front because they don’t study history. And when you’re in a
Popular Front with the Democrats, you are the junior partner: they set the
agenda, and you go out and knock on doors or make phone calls. You’re not a
Left anymore; you’re just grunt workers for the corporate liberals and
neoliberals. Howie Hawkins
