About this item

What is required, contends Azzellini, is politics as a gamble rather than as something known in advance, that requires people to construct temporary syntheses and new social relations that anticipate the coming socialist society. In particular it must resignify the state so that the state neither contributes to the toxic ecosystem of capitalism nor subsumes social movements into its own machinery. He covers class, constituent power, and popular power; movements and alternative construction in Venezuela; the communal councils: local self-administration and social transformation; new collective business paradigms; workers' control, workers' councils, and class struggle; communes, production, and the communal state; and local and worker self-management, two-track construction, and class struggle: a preliminary assessment.
