In all the commotion leading up to the DSA convention (two weeks to go!) I nevertheless have managed to get some content for you, my valued audience! I’ve written another article for DSA’s magazine, Democratic Left, which just made it onto the Internet. After engaging in discussions with other DSAers, I’ve come to see this topic as even more important than I realized when I was invited to write a review of Our Revolution and Hegemony How-To last spring. I’ve started speaking of it as strategic magnanimity. “Magnanimous” has always been a favorite word of mine (I love the idea of being great souled), and it’s not about “just being nice because you have to.” It’s about getting results.
Anyway, I hint at that in this article. Expect more on this topic after the convention!
