That's just bullshit politics. Populism only functions to gain power and for it to remain an useful tactic, issues must never be resolved. It's lying to get sympathy.

The revolutionary act is to provide knowledge or tools for the proletariat to liberate themselves. To be able to break the forced dependency of the State, corporations, strong willed individuals and "movements".

"Move people into my movement" is petite bourgeois bullshit. Debate and engagement mean nothing, see president Trump. The number of people you can convince with it are minimal and growing in numbers is meaningless.

Finally calling out those that are wrong is a very proven communist tactic, there are many people like yourself that feel the need to spread their bullshit like they just found gold. It is imperative to call them out and shut them down.

Lol,

The crazy man who shouts at pigeons feels the same way.

I hope this is satire.

So much for debate and engagement. Glad we have that in common, though.

Also so much of accepting all people. I guess the man that talks to pigeons and I are not people.

You and I don't have that in common.

I am accepting of most people. This includes you and people that shout at pigeons.

But if you genuinely subscribe to the ideals and methods that you describe, then you are going to be equally successful in manifesting any kind of change.

The inability to form a broad church and to engage successfully and effectively with those outside of a narrow viewpoint is a failing the right are currently capitalising on.

Some believe that this is actually encouraged and massaged by those in power to keep the left ineffective.

I'm not interested in change, I'm for abolition.

Things are not a fight of left vs right, much less a fight for the undecided. What you're proposing of nothing more than an extension of Democrats vs Republican American politics that have no place in a revolutionary program.

keep the left ineffective.

The left is ineffective, there's nothing to keep. Only the working class acting on their own self interest can produce anything. Leftist politics is wasted effort.

I would class abolishing as a change.

Democrats and republicans are the same party, exact same political position, bad example
