Sarah Jaffe: “Interviews for Resistance: From Resistance to Revolution—It’s Time To Switch to Offense”

An organizer talks about what it takes to move from a reactionary position to one where we fight for the power to govern:  ‘I think this question of, “How do we move from just being in the mode of resistance and rebellion to actually figuring out how we actually reorganize society?” I think that is the central question for our movements and for our generation and for those of us who really want to deal with the fundamental problems that produced a Trump presidency in the first place and that are producing these right-wing populist movements all across the world.  Fundamentally, I think part of what we have to do, really, is be clear on what we mean when we talk about a revolution.’
