I was curious and excited to read the title of this article. The need to fuse identity and class politics is high. As I read the article I became disappointed to see Grossman is still confined by the "Red Scare." First-off, Donald Trump is not a whiff of fascism, he and his appointees are the stinking turds of fascism: privatized governance by the 1%. Second-off, Grossman mentions the "working-class" only once in the entire article and that occurs in the first sentence of the third paragraph where he continues the muddle of misunderstanding by separating "middle-class" and "working-class" interests. We must face the fact that politics is defined as the conflict of interests between the wage/salary earners, and the owners of the means of production of wealth who pay the wages and salaries. War, misogyny, racism and poverty are means used to divide and conquer the working class. Yes, it is important that the oppressed groups stand to defend themselves; but as the last 60 years have shown, this is not enough. The undeniable common thread running all through the movements of the oppressed, the fabric that can unite us all, is our membership in the working class. Our unified, class based opposition is needed to stop global destruction in the interest of private profit. Get over the red-scare. Workers of the World Unite. We have nothing to lose and a world of peace, justice and abundance to gain.
