Overcoming the fears associated with seizing power will be one of the
biggest obstacles for the American Left to overcome. All measures
enacted by the State require the backing of force. The illusion that
power is somehow inherently devious or obtrusive to human freedom is
ridiculously childish. Without power, no decisions can be made, nothing
can be done by any party or class- regardless of whether it is
capitalists or workers who act as “dictators” within the system.
Socialists have to seize power with the assent of the public in order to
make our demands a reality.
