The urgency is great. Capitalism cannot cure itself. It is driven by its internal logic to destroy the planet in the search for profit and the reinvestment of any surplus value we create. The choice is becoming starker and starker. It is either socialism with democracy, planning and satisfying human need leading to a secure and safe environment or the continuation of capitalism and the descent into global warming barbarism.
Socialist Alternative is a vibrant organisation arguing for a fundamental regroupment of the revolutionary left. It is in discussions with the Revolutionary Socialist Party about a merger. A number of independent socialists have recently joined the organisation understanding that what unites us is much greater than what divides us and that those differences can and will be debated out in a comradely fashion and public disagreement with the majority view can be and is an important part of that process. A cult? I don’t think so. A serious organisation looking to build a unified organisation on the revolutionary left to fight the battles ahead? Absolutely. I would urge all those committed to revolution and socialism to at least consider the proposed new unified revolutionary left as one real option for your future political activity.
