During a revolutionary period, any or all of the following three things might occur:
1. People might organize neighborhood assemblies to address their local needs.
2. Neighborhood groups might organize armed patrols for public safety.
3. Neighborhood assemblies might federate various neighborhoods across a city, and form councils.
Neighborhoods have a mixed class character. So unlike workers councils, any council for a federation of neighborhoods might have a mixed class character.
With that in mind, what's your opinion on each of the three things mentioned above? Considering each item independently, do you think it's something that proletarian organizations should welcome and embrace, or should they instead see it as a potential threat?
Or do you think the attitude should depend on the class character of the specific neighborhood? (Which then raises the question of how to judge what the class character is, where to draw the line, etc.)
I'll post my thoughts in a reply.
