Review “Populism and Socialist Democracy”

Rethinking Democracy, Edited by Leo Panitch and Greg Albo. Socialist Register.<http://www.socialistregister.com/index.php/srv/issue/view/1899#.WurbN-jwZD8> 2018.


"For Leo Panitch and Greg Albo “the social revolution of building capacities for self government” is more important than gaining state power. “Actually existing liberal democracy” is entangled with anti-democratic institutions. The 2018 edition of the Socialist Register explores the potential of  “socialist democracy” against reactionary “populist appeals in the name of defending ‘our’ democracy’”. In doing so some contributors see merit in some forms of ‘left-populism’.
