    Jermey Brecher says that the social roots of doom are part of a common pattern that we can observe repeatedly in history. People live their lives and pursue their goals by means of strategies that have been developed over time. But sometimes they discover their established strategies aren't working. No matter how hard they try, their problems remain intractable. The natural result is despair. But the awareness that other people are experiencing the same despair changes the context in which it is experienced. It opens up new possibilities. Perhaps the problems that we despair of solving as individuals can be addressed through some kind of collective action. When people begin to explore that possibility, the result may be a social movement.

  51. The fight for a different world
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    For some, Genoa will become synonymous with violence - and this is certainly the line that many mainstream newspapers adopted. Unfortunately, so have some nongovernmental organizations. But there are two separate questions here. The first has to do with the violence of the state directed against the movement; the other is a question of how the movement deals with a small minority of self-selected individuals who choose to engage in a set of tactics that are detrimental to the movement as a whole. The presence of the black bloc (or of agent provocateurs posing as black bloc members) should not be allowed to hide the real purveyors of violence in Genoa.

    Capitalism was the unintended consequence of bourgeois revolutions, whereas socialism has been the avowed purpose, or at least a crucial component, of every revolution since 1911. This difference has become so important that when we think about the transition from capitalism to socialism, we take the short view: we look for ideological extremes, social movements, vanguard parties, self-conscious revolutionaries, radical dissenters, armed struggles, extra-legal methods, political convulsions – as if the coming of socialism requires the abolition of capitalism by cataclysm, by insurgent, militant mass movements dedicated to that purpose.

Their role is particularly important as official archives are forced to restrict acquisitions, limit access and discard materials as funding is slashed.

The Iranian Revolution, among the largest popular uprisings, achieved about 10 percent mobilization. In the US with 311 million people, this would mean between 15.5 million and 31.1 million people.”
