[Marxism] Why we should outgrow "diversity of tactics"

The way the Democratic party hopes to coopt Occupy is NOT by getting its
endorsement for the election or even clearing it off the streets as it did
the old anti-Vietnam war movement.

What they want is a tiny, disorganized muddle utterly incapable of gaining
and exercising power as an independent mass movement, but useful for cameos
on Rachel Maddow.  So al lot of what's thrown out there has to do with
keeping the movement form actually becoming a movement and exercising its
power independently.

I hate to say it, but the socialist groups I've seen haven't done much to
prevent this.
