In Welcome to the Forum
The leftist tradition has always India Phone Number List been characterized by an internal questioning of its intermediate strategies and objectives (the ultimate ideals are sacred and inalienable). Its controversies have been the cause of confrontations and divisions throughout history (reform or revolution, internationalism or India Phone Number List socialism in a single country, popular front or rupture between socialists and communists, alignment with the Soviet Union or China or Albania, rent basic or guaranteed employment, social-liberalism or statism, leftism or populism, institutional politics or street protest.Internal fights flare up when India Phone Number List things don't go well, as they do now. I am not referring only to the electoral results (which, in any case, are not good. In Europe the social democracy India Phone Number List obtains half of the votes that it obtained a few decades ago and the alternative left fails to fill the gap), but, above all, to strategic disorientation. Explanations and India Phone Number List proposals of all kinds about the problems that afflict the leftist parties proliferate. Within these explanations, there is a set of them that have a family resemblance, despite the fact that they are quite different from each other. I proceed by enumeration. For some, the left has failed to combat India Phone Number List neoliberalism and has allowed itself to be absorbed by the globalizing and financial elites. For others, the left has India Phone Number List made a mistake in its policy of alliances with national, ethnic or cultural minorities, which has led it to abandon its universalism. There are also those who think that the problem lies in the abandonment of the working class: the left has become elitist, it no longer understands or reasons India Phone Number List as the workers do. And finally there are those who believe that the underlying problem stems from postmodernism and American cultural studies: In all these diagnoses there is, more or less explicitly, an appeal to a purity that was lost at some point. In fact, it is possible to find a India Phone Number List common denominator in all the comments.
