If the Left is to rebuild itself into an important force in the United
States, it’s unclear what role the Greens will have in that rebuilding.
Greens, spurred by an influx of Leftists, may be able to reform their
party internally and place it on solid footing by embracing the
time-honored and proven methods of political organizing, such as
establishing a national membership system and placing a stronger
emphasis on party unity and internal democracy. Indeed, there is a
movement voiced most notably by Howie Hawkins of New York to do just
that. However, accomplishing that monumental task is unlikely and those
who support political independence will likely need to leave the Green
Party and join with other socialist groups to form a new political
organization that will fight for a truly independent working class party.
