The argument for a new form of left unity in our country based on our respective organizations’ relatively small numbers and the potential value of pooling our limited resources is a compelling one. As is the contention that whatever differences exist today amongst us are mostly about the past and it would be a good thing to keep the discussion going on evaluation of the socialist movement’s history in the U.S. and worldwide while at the same time concentrating our efforts on meeting the political challenges of the day. I am convinced that the effort to achieve such unity is possible if we maintain an atmosphere of tolerance and eschew subjective responses to past encounters and disputes.
