  Comrade (and Comrades),

I would think in the same way that both Marx and Bakunin saw themselves 
in the Paris Commune.

Anarchism does not preclude political campaigning.  Especially the 
campaign for a worker's candidate to serve at a worker's union wage 
($50,000 with all above that to be returned to the community.)

The campaign is not designed to and cannot bring the points of the 
platform into being.  Rather, the campaign is to 1.) raise our issues 
from a real Left (not liberal tagged as socialist) perspective; 2.) 
serve as a model for other efforts elsewhere.

The initial organizing community started with a black anarcho-communist, 
a black nationalist, an Asian Maoist, and a white Stalinist.

Now, if we can do it, don't you think that you can?
