organising.work has impressed me on multiple occasions with their articles.

I often get the sense that although they are doing workery stuff that a bunch of it is genuinely good. So I'd love to hear criticisms and what people generally think of this piece.

In particular, what I found good was the later stuff around these points:

  • the whole section on one-on-ones. In the little bit of organising I've done around rent strike, it seems to be the major thing that matters.

  • "The most capable, militant fighters who emerge in a given campaign are often people who had zero leftist commitments prior, or even any previous union experience. There’s a natural reason for this: folks are fighting from the heart, for what really matters to them and their family. Their motivation doesn’t come from abstract politics, as is the case for some leftists."

  • "Political ideology is, for many people, an identity, not a set of practical commitments."

Didn't read anything else on organising.work, but this article seems to be reasonably well-thought from my non-orgonizing point of view.

A few people really didn't like it on reddit.

I'm trying to learn a bit more about what appears to be one general criticism, and then also what else might be wrong with this, especially after post-left, nihilist, and insurrectionary critique.
