Winning reforms and fighting for revolutionary change

Listen now: Brian Becker, a national leader of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, reviews the similarities and differences in tactics between reformist and revolutionary perspectives. While revolutionaries must fight for reforms, the revolutionary is distinct in making it clear who the class enemy is, and that it is the strength of the movement that wrestles concessions from them – as opposed to the reformist view that promotes the idea that the interests of the working and capitalist classes can be reconciled. This discussion will help organizers in understanding this key distinction that is key to winning revolutionary change.
