Assisting the Self-Development of #TheResistance to Trumpism and to Authoritarianism in Europe

with Ravi Bali, London-based activist and writer,

and Andrew Kliman, author of Reclaiming Marx's "Capital" and The Failure of Capitalist Production

Trumpism and resurgent authoritarianism have generated a tidal wave of opposition around the globe. In the U.S., a movement of millions of people in active revolt against Trumpism—known as #TheResistance—has emerged. Its self-development requires that we support its independence from the Democratic Party and from “leftists” who would co-opt or derail it. We must also combat the idea that the left can somehow win over the “base” that supports Trump and other authoritarians and turn white nationalists towards revolutionary socialism. That is a pipe dream of a segment of the “left” that wants power for itself and which acted in ways that helped Trump win the 2016 U.S. election.
