We need a better plan

“I think the growing disjuncture between theory and practice has impoverished both practice and theory alike by making theory abstract and complicated in ways that tend to obscure social reality, rather than to illuminate it. Theory has become very highfalutin, head-in-the-clouds, and actually very strange in many ways. … Meanwhile, at the same time, we as activists and socialists became stuck in a kind of a rote script of protests and militancy, i.e. in activity disengaged from a general strategy of social change. We react to whatever is happening, whether it's the invasion of Iraq or the mining of the harbors of Nicaragua. We react and march around and then dissolve and then we just come together at the next crisis.”
