I'd like to see something written about the effects the Trump campaign and administration has has had on the left. Just off the top of my head I'd say

-Swing to social democrat electoralism as the main influencer and entry point to the radical left

-Polarization between "economistic" and "identity politics" tendencies

-The seeming decline of anarchism as a unique and identifiable segment of the radical left

-Perceived amplification of the stakes translating into more salt the earth tactics towards internal rivals

Haven't you made this swing yourself? IIRC, you voted.

I have no idea who you are.

I haven't voted since 2004. But the mere act of an individual voting is not the same as a collective political strategy of social democratic electoralism.
