Ocasio-Cortez and the tendency she represents may end-up being the ultimate
short-term sheep dogs, especially for millennials, that critical
demographic most open to socialism. But if that becomes the case, it will
not be because of the power and skill of this tendency but the failure on
the part of those of us who are attempting to build an independent
alternative to win over those elements. Don’t tell me about DSA’s 40,000
members when the Green Party has close to 300,000 members.

Ideas have consequences, the cultural and ideological struggle is central.
The reactionary forces understand this simple fact. It is past the time for
leftists in the U.S. to come to terms with this area of struggle and learn
to execute it much better than we have up to now.

Best regards,
