Moderately new to leftism, can anyone give a rundown/advice on the state of the left and the left wing parties in Australia?

Currently Ive only really noticed two groups in my city - Socialist Alliances and Socialist Alternative (The Communist Party seems to be mainly a LARP/club for boomers) both mainly from their newspaper sellers though the latter also seems to have the only large scale conferences.

Outside of Refugees/immigration and Adani what are some of the key struggles/issues to focus on?

CPA is hardly "Anti Revisionist ML". Their political line is all over the place, and they have no real consistent political line. Most of them believe that China is a shining example of socialism, and answers will vary person to person whether or not the DPRK is a socialist state or a "fascist state", whether Syria is "socialist" or not, whether we should denounce Iran or not.

The party is, for the most part, a dinosaur party that has been able to attract a handful of college students precisely because their political line is so vague and under-developed. "Socialism means whatever you want it to mean".

As for the other parties -

CPA (ML): Former RIMite affiliated ML-MZT party. Better, more consistent political line that CPA, but they hold some weird positions (eg, that Australia is a "neo-colony" of the US). May or may not actually exist in the real world (Party is clandestine, so unknowable how big they actually are)

SALT: Imperial Soc-Dems/"Cruise missile socialists". Liberals/SJWs with red flags. Will shill for US foreign policy until their lungs burst.

SEQ/Salliance: Literally who?

Katters: Moderate, non racialist turd positionism Light. The most "radical" actually existing political force in mainstream politics. Think Hugh Long in 1930's US.

In short: There is no real, actually competent Communist Party in Australia right now.

SAlt's more like a third of that, and SAll's books are overflowing with paper members - I'd be surprised if they had more than 150 active members nationwide.

Both orgs are similar in that the elderly socdem leadership has snivelling, authoritarian, former Young Labor lieutenants as seconds-in-command. In a revolutionary situation (as fucking if), the socdems would get purged. The orgs would either go full neoliberal or else they'd combine the paranoia of an aging Stalin with the governance abilities of an aging Mao.

That's if the tendency of both orgs' leaderships toward harem-building doesn't #MeToo them into the ground first.

The SEP is what happens when you use the Judean People's Front sketch as an organisational blueprint. SAlt and SAll are the only groups with any sort of membership in Australia, and as I said above they're both so tiny as to be irrelevant. Beyond those two it's just ultra-minisule grouplets flinging shit isotropically. I'm probably pissing into the wind trying to tell you that though, since you apparently couldn't figure it out after reading the sectarian trot screeds that pass for articles on the WSWS.

Don't be fooled by the outward trappings of high organisation like a well-maintained website or official meeting space. These things aren't funded by an active member base. The Australian Far Left is funded mainly from 1) the estates of dead 70's-era 'activists' who moved on to well-paid posts in academia or the union bureaucracy, and 2) proceeds from selling off the meeting spaces they bought for a song in the 70's. Seriously, the million $ sale of one of SAll's old meeting spaces is pretty much the only thing keeping the Green Left Weekly afloat.

I could do that - is there anything specific you want to know? Note that I'm going to be very careful not to go into detail. The Australian far left is tiny - it wouldn't take much to identify me.

Most of your time in an org is spent on the street trying to recruit people. We'd go to various public places like the campus or the local market, set up a table, and yell like carnival barkers trying to get people to sign a petition or buy a paper. That stuff's just a pretense to get people in a conversation so you can find out if they're a commie, though. The petitions may as well be fake. One thing I still like about orgs is that it they make protests not a complete waste of time. As we all saw with Iraq, mass protests are beyond useless for actually achieving change. What they are good for is attracting potential recruits. On campus you might sell 10 papers and get one person who shares some of your politics to leave their contact details. For the self-selecting group of folks at a protest, you might get 2 or 3 interested folks for the same number of paper sales.

Once you've got them on the hook, you reel them in by holding public seminars or beginner's reading groups in your meeting space. Isolation is the point of those events. The idea is to fill the room with commies so the only opinion the prospective recruit hears is ours. We'd be explicitly instructed to separate groups of non-members, for example - we'd try to make sure there were two members talking to every potential recruit, with the rest of the members running interference by keeping other non-members out of those convos.

SAlt has a yearly conference which is basically the above paragraph on steroids. Instead of a couple of hours spent stuck in a room with them, it'd be three days surrounded by people trying to convince you of SAlt's politics. As every cult and MLM pyramid scheme knows, it works a fuckin' treat. Because it works so well, all the way up to Easter they put an absurd amount of effort into shilling it. Still, plenty of people tell horror stories of getting approached by 20 different trots giving the same all asking the exact same questions ("Do you consider yourself left wing?" "Was there a particular session that interested you?" "Have you got your subscription?", etc.)

The idea is basically to keep getting prospects to as many of these events as we can manage until they either join up or tell us to fuck off. And by that I mean we would not stop until we were explicitly told to fuck off. SAlt is famous for barraging people with phonecalls.

Once a person's joined up they can start going to weekly member's meetings, which are divided between political education/discussion and organisational matters (ie, how to get more recruits). The political education/discussion part basically involves the leadership telling everyone what their opinion should be on the topic at hand, and everyone getting some practice repeating that line out loud. There are also separate reading groups.

Aside from that stuff, the other thing they do is fuck around with the National Union of Students. Normally the whole NUS is just job training for the Young Labor/Liberal students. The national offices are paid positions though, and come with extra funding on top for campaigns. Young Labor basically bribes the far left groups to vote them into the presidency by handing over some lower positions like Queer or Environment Officer or whatever. Young Liberals are there to dismantle the whole thing to stop money getting to communists. At some point, everyone yells at everyone else about Palestine. Occasionally, a Young Labor fuckstick will jump ship over to the far left - likely because they realised they wouldn't hack it in the grown-up Labor Party. They inevitably rise up the ranks super quickly in SAlt, to the point where a sizeable portion of their national-level leadership is former Young Labor.

>harem-building

For various reasons, these orgs recruit almost exclusively on uni campuses. This has been SAlt's explicit strategy since the 90's, and SAll adopted it in the last 5 or so years to try to stave off their decline. Because of this, their orgs are characterised by a huge member turnover rate. In a year, the org might sign up ~30 first-years nationwide, but during the same period they'll lose 15 of them, plus 10 of last year's recruits, and 4 longer-term members. Net yearly increase: 1 member.

With that kind of membership flow, you end up with a two-tier org - a huge number of impressionable 17-18 year old first-years with a low level of political education, and a much smaller leadership cadre of 5-10+ year veterans. That massive gulf in experience and authority between the two tiers is the perfect environment to foster the development of cliques - where a charismatic older member brings a bunch of younger members under their personal influence. In the worst case, of course, it leads to sexual exploitation (look up Gerry Healy). Luckily I was variously too ugly, male, and antisocial to get sucked into that shit, but I saw it happen to good comrades.

Thanks, it felt good to write it all out like that. I'm glad you appreciated it.

>how does a person help the leftwing cause if the two main parties are broken in this way?

I've been trying to figure that out ever since I left. I'm still a communist. I'm one of the unlucky ones - most people who drop out of an org burn out and leave politics behind entirely. They spend the rest of their lives in blissful ignorance of history, politics, economics.

I've spent a great deal of my free time devouring every bit of literature I can get my hands on, theory, history, math; Marx, Lenin, Cockshott, hell even Dupont and Tiqqun in a fit of pique one week. I talk politics with everyone I know. I'm fucking insufferable irl. I've got a really clear picture of what doesn't work. What can we do to get from here to communism, though? I still haven't the fucking foggiest, and it's monumentally frustrating.

Sometimes I even want to go back. I think that maybe this time, if I just diligently do wherever the branch committee tells me, by some strange alchemy it'll bring us closer to communism. But they have no idea how to help the left-wing cause. They're running on a combination of stale tradition and manipulative pragmatism. I think a little part of me always knew they didn't know how to further the cause.

Shit, this came out way more emotional than I thought it would. I had almost forgotten how big a part of my life that group was.

>how serious are the consequences for leaving?

They're not going to burn you at the stake as an apostate or anything. You'd almost certainly have to change your number, though. I wasn't joking about the phonecall barrage thing. They can and will get interstate comrades to call you to get around you screening your calls. For most people, one of the hardest things about leaving an org like SAlt is the sudden precipitous drop in social contact. Between stalls, protests, meetings, reading groups, and poster runs you spend a fuckton of time with those people. With that kind of imbalance, most people end up drifting away from their non-political friends - and the org itself tacitly encourages it. Lots of people find themselves suddenly very alone after they leave. I was lucky there - as I said before, I'm pretty antisocial. Being part of a group was the exception in my life, so leaving and being alone was more of a return to normal than it is for other people.

>What kind of demands does SAlt make of your time and money?

I'm not going to quote numbers on money front (I've got lots of problems with SAlt but I'm not gonna go violating OPSEC over it). Direct payments are regular dues, plus a yearly pledge (and they'll badger you to fundraise among relatives and remaining friends for that). Indirectly, there's more. There's the stuff that'll get you reproach from on high if you don't shell out for, like a subscription to the paper, tickets to the conference, and a steady supply of texts for reading groups (from the organisation's bookshop, naturally). On top of that there's passive social pressure to buy merch (T-shirts with and badges to wear on the stalls).

The demands they make on your time can be huge. If you're not careful, you can find most of your spare time and even some of your non-spare time taken up with political 'activity'. It seems like there's always something you could be doing - a meeting, a protest, putting up posters for the previous two, a paper sale, a reading group, calling contacts, reading groups, preparing remarks for an upcoming discussion, educationals (members-only lectures outside of normal meeting times to reinforce a political line the national leadership thinks is going astray), banner making, etc, etc, etc.

>Any idea on what caused such an anti revolutionary change and why its being kept that way?

I'd say it's two things. First is a fundamental flaw in their political perspective. A flaw so deeply rooted they couldn't possibly get it out. Namely - nobody has any idea how to actually achieve their organisation's stated goals. It's not limited to trot orgs, of course - it's a disease that's been running unchecked on the Marxist Left since 1991.

The other part of the problem is the pragmatic measures developed in response to the first problem. These orgs have had to find a way to sustain themselves in the absence of a way forward. To survive in such circumstances, an org has to get lean and mean. Their problem is attrition - without a purpose, the org is constantly bleeding members as they come realise they're wasting their time. So the org needs a constant supply of new people to make up for that, and it needs to stem the bleeding as much as it can. The best way to recruit is aggressively, and the best way to retain members is to keep them isolated from the real world and too busy to think about anything else. Thus, the political cult is born.

Eh, not sure I'd go that far. The Australian left's been dead for longer than SAlt's even existed. You can't hurt what's already dead. That Honi Soit article's kind of emblematic, really. The 'harm' that's come to 'the left' boils down to one group of private-school-educated uni twats annoying other groups of private-school-educated uni twats. It's a good reminder that the real movement will have nothing to do with the 'Official Far Left' when it comes.

from what the other posters say about SAlt, it seems not having a line for everything with that everyone is expected to agree with is a good thing.

thinking everyone should agree with everything seems like the definition of sectarianism to me. and it will alienate people who'd otherwise make good comrades.

the main goal is coming closer to achieve collective ownership of the means of production, EVERYTHING ELSE, whether you like or dislike foreign power X, or many other matters, should NOT be something everyone needs to agree to.

Actually it works out to a little bit more than a tithe. You're expected to pledge around 5% of your yearly income (not including what you can scare up from family and friends), and your weekly dues are roughly 0.1% of your yearly income, which over 52 weeks adds up to 5.2%. So you end up giving 10.2% of your yearly income to them. Huh. I never sat down and worked that one out before. Of course, they don't tell you it's a tithe, the analogy they draw to convince you is union dues.

Honestly? Just avoid them. Change your number if you can, block known numbers and screen your calls hard if you can't, don't go to known stall spots, get out of conversations quickly if you run into members, etc.

You could prepare a formal resignation, but frankly that'll just provide them an opportunity to browbeat you into staying. Lord knows I've seen that happen. Even if you formally quit they'd still hit you up to pledge, go to the conferences, and attend fundraisers as a supporter. Easier to just sever contact.

Unfortunately in Australia we don't really have very many options when it comes to serious far-left options, Labor at this point is the party of Bureaucrats, and would sooner sell out the working class then defend it.

The only quasi-leftist party i've be able to find that is actually well read and not just a bunch of people that like punk aesthetic is the Citizens Electoral Council, They are founded on the ideas of Lyndon LaRouche which made me initially skeptical of them, but there website is a genuine bounty of rich information, and after attending one of their meetings it was a pleasant feeling to be the idiot in the room for once since everyone else was so well read. Long and short of their policy, stricter control over the banks, introduce a national bank, and join China's Belt and Road initiative so as to keep us on edge. Outside of that, think global warming is a myth, and in favor of more research into fission energy, and big fans of Eurocentric thinking without the attached white nationalism.

We have more options than the far-right do, but that's likely due to the left being significantly more in control than the right is here

In fact i would say that most of our government is already left leaning as it is, even more than the US

I mean unless you want to consider the AFP a serious party (which it isn't) and even then when compared to American parties, its not even far-right leaning, its at most center right

The problem in our country is that we have an overwhelming amount of idiots who pick a side of politics in much of the same manner as picking a team in a football match

They do not take into account the desires these parties have or what they want to acquire/achieve, but have no qualms offering their total support like they're part of that "team" and staying loyal to them.

And the only time they ever change is when we have shitty single topic elections, like the NBN, which saddly enought completely leaves out all the other stuff our government doesn't want particularly public, like the TPP, the marriage referral ect…

This is why i never vote liberal labour or greens and make sure that none of my votes get given to them, they're trashy oligarchical elitists that have no qualms being utterly disgusting human beings to get money

Used to have a senate seat but the Senator went independent and cucked them out of it

>Rise up Australia!

Insane EvangeloCon Prot party in Victoria owns one council seat which is just the founder of the party's hometown iirc

Real meme that one

He believes floods and storms are god crying cuz we legalised gay marriage and bushfires are gods vengance for abortion

>Australian Liberty Alliance

The party of that Israeli i was talking about

Basically exists solely to harass Muslims

From what I've seen really only exists online though apparently its planning to run in the next election

>United Patriots front

All these other groups were "I sleep" while this is "Real sheit"

I think the biggest hindrance to socialism in Australia is the lack of class consciousness. Unions membership is very low now (see ABS link). There is both a general misdirection with upper-lower-middle class identity bullshit and egalitarianism. That on one hand is useful for understanding some general socioeconomic phenomenon on a graph of relative population inequality, like health, education and housing and so on. If you are on the dole then you're not going to afford a trip to the dentist.

And on the other hand there is a the cultural identity and dogmatic attachment of egalitarianism.

>every cunt has a fair go m8

>a fair crack of the whip

This egalitarianism rhetoric can be seen as early as Robert Menzies and all the way up to Turnbull or Dutton - liberal, neoliberal / conservative austerity policy that has continued to leak down the generations. Egalitarianism is the dominant discourse amongst

australian identity, especially for boomers. In america the same rhetoric exist its just more, how can I say… American

>"America was once called the Land of Milk and Honey. It was so named for the prosperity and promise associated with the opportunity that was once available to anyone who, when willing to work, could acquire a piece of the American Dream."

>>2592948 (op)

the internet has superseded the need for a weekly meet-up, membership fees and group readings of das kapitel. and Australia missed out by not having the structure of a strong socialist party before these changes. what we may see in the future is fringe parties gaining traction or the labour party shifting 'with the times' with regards to mimicking america and alexandria ocasio-cortez demsoc discourse or possibly a UK corbyn follow. but somehow i doubt we will shift because of the dprk. Or a push in the opposite direction of the overton window in regards to recent Liberal party policy that is typical austerity for the working class and tax cut for corporations. Its not worth trying to predict. Just prepare for the revolution and hope it isn't a posadist one.

Never said don't organise. It shouldn't have to be said, the structure for political parties is non existent for leftist. which means there is an opening for sed gap to be filled. but the variables are just that. too variable. here are the dumb prediction that i made in a structured and organised way for a fucking trot that need the ice pick to understand.

1 a) follow american demsoc trends

b) follow uk with corbyn trends

(Australia is still muh westernism, yet prodiminatly anti-trump, if the AOC/bernie timeline works out for the prols in america it may gain traction here same goes for corbyn just lesser known in Aus, so a less viable candidate).

2 a) force both labour and greens further left by 1a&b and voting for their candidates that support 1a&b in addition to other leftist policy but honestly fuck greens now, but if the australian political overton window shifts they will just be ecosocialists, like they should be now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labor_Left

b) maybe Steve Jolly can rally a socialist movement that will break the two party power in Aus and kick off a political dynasty.

3 a) maybe 1a&b + 2a&b will all happen

but look comrade this shit is all bourgeois political elitism if you crave structure in your life, join a union. I'm a member. where not all thugs.

The public has the attention span of a goldfish.

By the time of the next federal election (May most likely), the general public would have long forgotten about all of this.

The only reason Morrison won the spill was due to him being seen as more electable to swing voters then Dutton, while still being more then willing to pledge his loyalty to the graveyard smash (the far right of the party).

Due to this, if the libs gain a majority in the next election, there would be functionally little difference between the policies of a Morrison and Dutton government.

>>2628613

I would personally love to know what 'union bullies' they are referring to.

The two unions I know of that are most ideologically, financially and personally linked to the modern Labor party are the AWU (opportunistic neo-libs) and the fucking SDA (a catholic union founded to get rid of socialist influence in shops).

Putting such people in charge would only amount to broad policy agreements with the moderate faction of the liberals.

If only the WIUA had been successful.

That is not a turd position, that's just capitalism. The real turd position would be a system where a class that is neither the proletariat nor the bourgeoisie is dominant. Khmer Rouge and Russian S-Rs were turd positionist since they advocated for peasant power. But that is obviously not what "turd positionists" want, their position is just capitalism with bells and whistles.

Marx wasn't a moralist who understood society as evil and therefore needed to be destroyed, but was a socialist, firmly believing in the values of community life. There isn't some perennial utopia that all Communists strive towards that exists outside of history as some perfect Platonic ideal, but Communism is a political movement that is born in and through history. The Communist movement was born in and through capitalism, as a rejection of capitalism borne from the auspices of the logic of capitalism itself, as an anti-modernism from within the modernist tradition, desiring a return from industrial civilization to the natural life of the Commune, but understands that this Communism would be an industrial communism, understanding the return to nature through the fulfillment of the logic of civilization itself.

Marxism desires a real connection of man and nature but understands not just the value of civilization but of the nature of man as a social animal. Just as civilization is the conquest of humanity over nature as man transforms nature into civilization through production, the social nature of humanity means that the physical basis of mankind is translated into social terms, but this translation cannot be understated for in this translation these social terms constitutes the form which matter provides. The materiality of mankind isn't just his biology but his physical environment constituted through political economy. This is what dialectical materialism means, it means understanding political economy as a dialectic between nature and civilization.

A fundamental aspect of capitalism is commodity fetishism. Under capitalism, our social existences are established not directly through relations of domination but indirectly mediated by exchange. As social relations between people are established through relations between things via exchange, things obtain a social power which becomes a force that appears to exist independently of the human beings involved. The independent power these forces appear to have obfuscates the social relations that constitutes the underlying conditions that give way to these forces, and through their obfuscation those very underlying social relations appear natural, as if their traits are essential to the things themselves, as,if they have always existed and therefore will always exist. What commodity fetishism does is naturalize social relations of production as something outside history, as a natural force that doesn't arise from civilization but from nature itself.

This is how despite the apparent contradiction between the fascist's obsession with natural life, their politics is in effect a reaffirmation of the existing social order, of "civilization" (read: capitalism). The fundamental problem with Reaction is its mystical understanding of society means it cannot actually confront the historical genesis of civilization, and therefore cannot create the conditions of a truly social life. The community life promised by fascism is an illusion, the only real community can occur through the abolition of private property, the material basis of capitalist production.

>Most Practitioners of these Belief systems are simply doing it in rebellion against the Christian belief system as the Ideology of Satanism / Luciferianism itself is just a Inversion and Satire of Christian belief

There are many kinds of satanists, atheist and theistic ones, the ones practiced by those in power (even thought they are well versed in many many ancient forms of "satanism") is the belief that the bible is referring to Lucifer instead of Jesus, and there for Christians have it incorrect, and Lucifer was trying to liberate humanity. They're trying to be gods, and help everyone to be gods themselves. Paganism is also part of Satanism.

Not at face value interpretation. A Hindu will tell you that they don't worship the devil, they worship Hare Krishna who happens to be male and female (this is a common trait), and (according to the Bhavagad Gita) it's the lord of destruction, the serpent of eternity, the prince of demons. But "no" not satan or lucifer, perhaps the dual gendered and horned baphomet, but not explicitly named. The Freemason will tell you hes looking for truth and worships god, yet at the highest level it's lucifer.

Probably true, a lot of Aussies really don't like tall poppies. Reminds me of that Orwell quote about how a lot of people are subconsciously socialists. We would be a great Communist country, we have a lot of working class history and all our most popular politicians were SocDems (I'm thinking of Gough Whitlam and people like that).

>The problem is the fucking apathy or lack of determination

Exactly, Liberal Purgatory. Most people don't know how to think outside the box when it comes to politics. "Oh well, just vote Labor next time", I think that's the kind of attitude most people have.

>Though would it make it easier for socialists to take power? Would most just sorta accept the new way and continue as usual? Is a quiet revolution the way to go?

I reckon if the Communists seized power here (peacefully or violently), most Aussies would probably just accept it. They'd probably be too apathetic to challenge it and would likely just nod along with all the Socialist reforms.

American here, how the fuck can Australians be nationalistic literally at all? I understand that American nationalism is a joke too but it at least developed out a real (if inherently reactionary and genocidal) sense of exploration and creating your own identity and shit that came from the colonies and Manifest Destiny

Australia seems to literally have started as an open air prison where England dumped degenerates that woke up one morning and decided to form a country.

First of all, the Senate denied the motion that it was OK to be white. Fraser Anning holds near 0 power and was ABSOLUTELY DISAVOWED by prime ministers and the treasury jew. Australia is almost anti-nationalistic and certainly not pro-white, given the immigration policy and employment, legal and education policies which favour non-whites. The "concentration camps" are just containment zones for a numerically irrelevant number of illegal immigrants. It is not politically, economically or socially favourable to be nationalistic, racist or reactionary simply because that is not the most efficient way to process capital in this system. You fuckwits don't need to worry about a rising white consciousness in government because we are predicted to be majority non-European in the next 70 years and are running ahead of schedule.

For immigration, just look at the numbers, or better, walk down Elizabeth Street. We take in 250k+ migrants a year and the majority of those are non-whites predominately from China and India. Our population is 25 million. Factor in birthrates and the fact that our migration rate is still increasing. This is because Asia provides an inexhaustible amount of new coolies, investors and consumers which our economy entirely subsists on and cannot continue without.

>More People claim Scottish heritage then claim Chinese heritage

The issue however is the rate of change when it comes to immigration for instance the rate of monthly Chinese immigration has jumped 700% since 1990. Another example China and Chinese nationals are only the second largest foreign owners of Australian agricultural land behind the UK (UK at 27% and China at 25%) however Chinese ownership of land increased 10 fold between 2016 and 2017. Immigration like in Canada is creating a massive change in demographics regardless of ones politics. By raw numbers Australia has had some of the highest rates of migration in the World (and around 2012 was around the 5th highest in the world not counting city states) and these people arent mainly coming from places like Scotland.

>And despite Hansons screaming about it in the grand scheme of things lebs or Sudanese or who the fuck else dont even register on the fucking scale

Its not that simple - Sudanese born people (so not including people with the ancestry) in Victoria for instance are not even close to 1% of the population(clocking in at .14%) however they were identified as offenders in 26% of sexual offences and 20% of the aggravated burglaries. So whilst population wise they are very small they hit above their weight percentage wise when it comes to these kinds of social problems.

>How does this (Assuming your right) Ruin hopes for a future for Australia?

Well firstly there is simply the sheer environmental damage that comes from increasing the population so rapidly and then there are simply the social problems that stem from that kind of competition as well as the social problems that come with diversity.

>just fight for a socialist Australia as it eliminates the need for that

It seems to be a matter of ease - it would be an easier battle to stem mass migration than it would to build an non ethnic or cultural working class identity and overthrow capitalism in Australia. Its akin to why people might fight for better wages instead of just fighting to end wage labour instead.

I'm not hopeful, the fact that Australia has essentially managed to side step the entire populist upsurge going around the world and our social democratic and conservative parties are very strong and haven't really had to make any concessions towards the more radical left or right; there are no emerging corybins or sanders and our trump is literally just a meme. This is why despite having a voting system that for much easier entry into parliament our lower house literally has less cross benchers than say the UK which has a system which heavily discourages it.

Majorities have always been a conservative force and compulsory takes advantage of this which is why (in addition to the fact parties get money per vote) both parties are so strongly attached to it - to the point that its almost impossible to lose your voting registration short of getting a 3+ year jail sentence (and even then its temporary) or being rendered mentally incapable as well as why they are moving towards lowering the voting age down to 16.

 No.2714215

>>2713596

1) The ALP could possibly be shifted to the left somewhat, should social democracy prove to be palatable again in other countries as per >>2714108 .

However, even under ideal circumstances I could not imagine them embracing anything left of Georgism.

The right faction really does have a strangle hold on the party (even more so after Shorten changed the party rules to further empower them) and the left faction really lacks any sort of figure that possesses even a hint of charisma or wide support.

2) Trots have been attempting this for several decades longer then anyone using this board has been alive.

Not only has infiltration utterly failed, but it has given the right faction a convenient bogeyman that they have used to dismiss any arguments for a return to left wing politics.

3) The biggest trot group in this country uses organisational tactics seldom seen outside of Scientology and is very sketchy to say the absolute least.

The small trot groups are far better, but powerless, split happy and super into identity politics.

4) The CPA-ML does not really exist anymore, most of their former members have long since joined the CPA.

The CPA is honestly a pretty solid group with good leadership and a heterodox, union focused take on Marxism-Leninism that at times seems to border on De-Leonism.

While the CPA is small overall, they are the largest anti-idpol, socialist group that I know of in this country.

5) This has been attempted countless times before.

Pretty much none of these groups get the numbers to register as a real party, so as to even appear on a ballot.

Of the few that do, they get nowhere and quickly disband.

6) It would never get off the ground.

Even if it did, the recent anti-sedition legislation that was rushed through parliament, combined with the efficiency of modern intelligence services pretty much ensures that anyone involved would quickly find themselves spending several decades in solitary confinement.

7) LARPing never accomplished anything and nobody wants to live in the bush.


 No.2714370

I don't have all of the answers, so I'm not about to make a solid claim as to what is the 'way to go'.

However from my personal experiences with them, I do consider the CPA to be a very solid party and probably the best choice for any Australian socialist looking to become politically active.

Even if you do not stay with them for more then a few years.

I would still consider it worth joining them due to the training and experience they offer in political organisation, leadership and administration.

>is there another option?

I have not had any interactions with them for years.

However as of several years ago, the Australian IWW seemed pretty on point.

They were small, but not at all sectarian, very friendly and totally labour focused.

However much could have changed since then.

If they are at all like the modern IWW in America, then they would probably not even allow white guys to join.

A slight exaggeration on my part for comedic effect.

I'm sorry if that was not clear.

While I cannot speak for all of the IWW branches across the USA.

I can say with certainty that the vast majority of the IWW in America have taken the idpol pill hard.

So hard in fact that many branches now make use of the 'progressive stack' concept that effectively puts white men at the bottom of a sexual/racial caste hierarchy; The stated point being to limit white men from having any internal influence/voice in the name of ~equality~.

Effectively much of the American IWW has succumb to modern liberalism.

But I cannot say if the same is true of the Australian IWW - It certainly was not as of ~5 years ago.
