Race, Class, Gender, and Movement Vision for the Current Moment: Lessons from the League of Revolutionary Black Workers
We locate this analysis and vision within the current political moment. The world is in transition and embodies an irreversible capitalist crisis, and intensifying state violence, white supremacy, patriarchy, xenophobia, ecocide, war, political polarity, and struggle from below. The 2017 Trump presidency ushered in an intensification of the polarization of wealth and poverty, “democracy” for billionaire capitalists, and developing fascism for the masses. Forces of resistance and revolution are rising up. The underlying cause of these crises is rooted in the revolutionary process of economic revolution – robots and automation, social and ecological destruction, and political revolution. The resolution calls for fundamental systemic transformation – the creation of a cooperative and egalitarian society in which all human needs are met and the earth is protected. It is urgent that conscious movement forces engage in collective study and leadership, and develop a collective vision, revolutionary consciousness and strategy.
