Thank you for this — it’s always good to engage. I’m heading for bed now and heading off for a funeral over the weekend, so limited time to craft a response — but I have been reading the responses of others and was particularly struck by this, from Jeremy Gilbert: https://jeremygilbertwriting.wordpress.com/2016/08/01/a-response-to-paul-masons-labour-the-way-ahead/
It put a lot of things in perspective in the left/right progressive/regressive debate — I’m a newcomer and didn’t know the history.
If you get through that and found it useful (from either side), then this seemed to structure some kind of a useful way forward: https://www.opendemocracy.net/uk/jeremy-gilbert/facing-facts-progressive-strategy-for-2020
Enjoy! And thank you once again..
