The War for Quadrant Two

Quadrant two will prove to be the quadrant of victory for the proletariat


Quadrant two will prove to be the quadrant of victory for the proletariat

The struggle to shift the center of gravity of our work–away from simply “movementism” (ie: restricting our perspective to “getting people excitied” or “doing something now” or “building the next action” or assisting any of the many worthwhile struggles for partial demands) and toward the creation of a revolutionary news service that will be open to to activists from all trends and capable of serving as the central unifying project that will weave together countless threads of struggle–will define the nature of our work in the period ahead and lead to the development of a revolutionary mass organization with the ability to earn the respect of hundreds of millions and prepare our class for victory in the struggle to overthrow bourgeois rule and bring forth a world of peace, abundance and genuine community for all.

Moderation policy will be guided by the following principles:

(1) Moderation will be transparent

I will create one or more threads to post updates on who is suspended from this site, or is on moderatated status, and why.  I will also create a trash bin for posts I delete.  The only posts which will be deleted without being copied to the trash bin will be posts which contain: (a) commercial spam, (b) personally identifiable information (PII) about activists or which violate common sense security culture, or (c) threats or any content with potential to provide an excuse for harassment from legal authorities or grand juries.

(2) Moderation will be accountable to the activist community

There will be one or more threads where moderation principles and errors that I will inevitably make (either in moderating too harshly or not harshly enough) can be discussed.  Those who I have moderated and who disagree with my decision (or anyone else) will have the right to argue their case publicly on one or more of these threads.

(3) Comments must be political and respect the need of activists and our movement for sincere and productive discussion concerning the decisive tasks of our time

If you do not know what it means to be “political”, then you probably should not post here.  Ditto for “sincere and productive discussion”.
