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.
