To state the obvious, workers can most certainly act as a class without
making a successful revolution.  I think Louis was making the point that
some elemental form of class consciousness is absent from the
institutionalized trade union movement.  I would add that the quantifiable
numbers indicate that the most elemental form of trade unionism seems to be
absent from the institutionalized trade union movement.

Recognizing this seems a very basic requiement of Marxism in the US today,

When workers do act in their own interests as a class, there will be a
revolution. In fact, a revolutionary crisis will erupt when far less than a
majority of the working class begins acting in its own interests as a class.

All for now.
