What have we learned on both sides of the Atlantic over the last 5 years about pursuing a socialist agenda using the vehicle of traditional political parties?
Taking a historical perspective, this session will examine the challenges and limitations of this approach and what we could have done differently. Asking the question of what would have happened had we achieved power, participants will map out a long view on socialist strategy and explore different avenues for delivering success.
