Yes, I realize burgerstan is the most class-cucked nation in the world. I also know the left practically doesn't exist here at all. Still, there are some leftist political parties left, & although most are fringe, I'm curious if any are worth supporting or joining.
There's the DSA, who's experiencing the biggest current surge & might be the group with the most oncoming opportunity & realistic chance to grow. That said, I've also heard murmurs of it being full of liberals & centrists which is a bit discouraging, but I feel there has to be some hope in a group loudly criticizing Capitalism in a nation as right-wing as the US.
There's also the Socialist Party USA, who see themselves as continuation of the old Socialist Party of America. I'm not sure if they're really relevant, but they seem to be decent enough & multi-tendency.
There's also the Socialist Equality Party, who are trots & run the WSWS. I'm not a Trot & know they're pretty infamously sectarian & splintered, so I'm kinda cautious there too.
There's also the Socialist Alternative, pretty sure they're another trot group lol. IDK if either is better or bigger.
There's the Revolutionary Communist Party of USA, (no not the CPUSA, those guys aren't worth mentioning lol) who are M-Ls and Maoists apparently? Don't know much about them.
There's also the IWW, who seem to be the only real leftist labour union & they've got quite the history.
So yeah, that's where I am comrades. I know the temptation to meme about it being pointless is there, but I'm looking for genuine advice. Are any of these worth joining, either due to solid ideals or potential to grow? Are there better ones I haven't heard of? Is it all pointless? lol
I'm genuinely interested in at least attempting to get into local or even (I know) state politics & labour. I've been slowly establishing a leftist club at my University - which lacked one - but I also want to eventually move past simple lifestylist student agitation.
