The Merger Formula: Ideology on Why Real Parties are Real Movements and Vice Versa

"It is evident that the worker movement is divided into two sections, the Chartists and the Socialists. The Chartists are the more backward, the less developed, but...

Real Parties as Real Movements and Vice Versa: Alternative Culture and Bureaucracy Revisited

"Social Democracy is the party of the militant proletariat; it seeks to enlighten it, to educate it, to organise it, to expand its political and economic power by every available means, to conquer every position that can possibly be conquered, and thus to provide it with the strength and maturity that will finally enable it to conquer political power and to overthrow the rule of the bourgeoisie."...

Participatory Democracy and the Direct Democracy Question

"Instead of deciding once in three or six years which member of the ruling class was to misrepresent the people in Parliament, universal suffrage was to serve the people […]" (Karl Marx)
