We would like to use this text to begin a dialogue with those comrades within social democracy who contend that the last 25, 15 or 5 years of bleak development is the result of a series of coincidences – poor leadership, international pressure, mistakes, cunning opponents, etc. – and we would instead propose a more fundamental explanation. The problems we face are problems that are inherent and unavoidable in the very reformist strategy that social democracy is built upon – in both its successes and its failures.
