Like the progressive labour bureaucrats, todays generation of young radicals have spent all of their formative years living in the era of capitalist realism the era of There is No Alternative. And its perhaps for this reason that each tenet of the union bureaucrat philosophy finds its distorted mirror-image in the views of the young anti-union radicals. They tend to believe that middle-class intellectuals and full-time activists should take the lead role in strategy and that these groups do not have different material interests than rank-and-file workers. That building communes, rather than confronting capital, should be the movements main mission.
