Neo-Leftism and Obama

By Roger D. Harris

Posted on February 21, 2011 by the Marin County Central Committee

This article was originally published in Obama and the Current Capitalist Crisis (Institute for the Critical Study of Society, January 2010), and is reprinted by permission of the author.

The radical leftist assessment of current conditions is that only fundamental transformation of existing societal institutions can bring about meaningful change. Reformist activity – while tactically efficacious in certain circumstances – can ultimately be co-opted by the dominant powers in the absence of countervailing power from the popular classes. But what happens when there is not a strong countervailing power center rooted in the popular classes, when socialist revolution appears to some to be a fading dream, and when the extreme right appears to be looming ever more menacingly on the political horizon, as it does to so many activists today?

Marin County Central Committee

The members of the Marin County Central Committee for 2010-2012 are:

  • Roger Harris of Corte Madera
  • Bob Richard of Larkspur, county chair
  • Meryl Sundove of Corte Madera

From the death of Coleman Persily in early 2007 through March of this year, we did not have any visible presence in Marin. (Persily, a veteran of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in the Spanish Civil War, was an effective and respected advocate for tenants rights in San Rafael. He was a six-time Peace and Freedom Party candidate for State Assembly, most recently in 1998, and also ran for local office several times.) As a percentage of all registered voters, our registration here is only half the statewide average. But that will soon change.
