Would workers’ control change anything? Toward a classless Commons…

The question of socialism is far more than the question of the working class (which in the US is almost marginal at this point). If the working class controlled industries would their self-interest move to ignore the issue of climate change? A real socialist breakthrough has to look at the whole society and move to create a holistic system beyond class in which the issue is not working class control but the chance of expropriation of the whole property/capital sphere and the creation of a Commons…
It just might be possible for a reformist spectrum to move toward and electoral foundation for real socialism…expropriation of the means of production…

The welfare state isn’t enough. A future Bernie Sanders government needs to pursue policies that diminish the power of capital and radically democratize the economy.
