Forum Post: Whither Revolution?

The Revolution is located precisely in the incremental exceptions allowed the General Strike. General Strike, shutting down all capitalist operations, followed by humanitarian reopenings of essential services without transfer of money. You have thus set up the new government and new economy, there solely for fulfilling prioritized needs--and only later, wants. Mediums of exchange, other than the products and services themselves, are outlawed as the source of most pre-revolutionary problems.    The models are the Paris Commune of 1871 and the Seattle GS of 1919.

The first organizing must be in the military and police. Without their sympathy or at least their tolerance, they will be hired to crush the new order.

Whither revolution? No. Not at all.
