What can we say about realism?
Anarcho-Syndicalism has been a marginal force for the last fifty years. So have we anti-state/left communist. Anarcho-syndicalism can plausibly claim to have a plan they want to put into effect. The only thing is that we anti-state communists can claim is that we are reconciled to just working to be as effective a force as possible at historical moments when we are still a minority. That is, being a useful minority in moments when large scale revolt may be on the table but when large scale *organizing* is not. If you look struggles from the last, say, ten years, this might actually look more *realistic*. Who would have thought? Of course, either tendency has “a long way to go” to be effective even as minorities.
