Dear Greenpeace, McLibel, et al,

I was very impressed with the essay "WHY SOCIAL REVOLUTION IS NECESSARY",
which David Briars forwarded to the mclibel list.

It describes the (anarchist) process of building up civil society outside
of the political process (parties, elections, et al) better than I've ever
before seen it described.

Given the past failures of reform movements based on the political process,
and the dire emergency we all face due to rampant elite-corporate power
(fascism?), I well understand your call for this mode of action.

I have only one strategic critique to offer: since the elite have for the
first time since the Enlightenment -- by their neoliberal project --
totally abandoned the Western middle classes, the demographics of politics
in the West have changed profoundly.  I suggest that in addition to
building up civil society as you suggest, it may also be possible, via
election of a non-party slate of candidates, to also capture the reins of
state power.  Why walk if a vehicle can be commandeered?

respectfully,
rkm
