The Discussion Bulletin is affiliated with the Industrial Union Caucus in Education (IUCE). It serves as the financially and politically independent forum of a relatively unknown sector of political thought that places the great divide in the "left", not between anarchists and Marxists, but between capitalism's statist leftwing of vanguardists and social democrats, and the real revolutionaries of our era: the non-market, anti-statist, libertarian socialists. They are organized in small groups of syndicalists, anarcho-communists libertarian municipalists, world socialists, socialist industrial unionists, council communists, and left communists.
The perspective of these groups with their rejection of capitalism's wage, market, and money system, as well as capitalist politics and capitalist unionism constitutes the only real alternative to capitalism in both its market and statist phases.
In the DB the often antagonistic groups that make up this sector can debate and discuss the issues that divide them, and gain some understanding of their history and future possibilities. Among the latter might be movement toward at least limited cooperation.
The pages of the DB are open to anyone in this political sector, the only limitation being that submissions be typewritten, single-spaced, and copier ready. We do no editing here. As to content, we assume that submissions will be relevant to the purpose of the DB and will avoid personal attacks.
