Drifting further and further into the wilderness.
Certainly the Soviet Union was seriously flawed, but by focusing on social class, on Labor vs. Capital, the Left won a revolution and radically improved the position of women and minorities as a result, to the point that women's rights and minority rights moved far ahead of those in the West without ever having a women's movement or any type of race-based movement.
The plutocrats have divided and distracted the common people over the last few decades with Identity Politics, and the further we wander into the wilderness with it, the more political power and wealth the plutocrats accumulate.
First, we have to defeat Identity Politics and get back to a movement based on social class, for achieving equality in that leads to every other type of equality. Then, and only then, can we defeat Trumpism, Wall Street, the Chamber of Commerce, the Intelligence Agencies, the Corporate Mainstream Media, the Military Industrial Complex, and corporatism itself.
