As I read contributions to The Call and Jacobin, and from Solidarity members, I wonder if that doesnt explain some of the disagreements about "reform or revolution" that have come up between some Solidarity members and some members of DSAs Bread and Roses caucus. Framing these disagreements as a set of questions has helped me better understand the contending views.
many people around B&R do seem to prefer not to use the word "revolution" when describing their politics or strategy. It's as if it's a little too tainted by its association with insurrection. So, the democratic socialists of Bread and Roses and Jacobin had to find a different word for what happens when a working-class government rejects the limits of capitalism and pushes forward to create a socialist state and society.
