Tema: Reformisme

Donny Gluckstein: The rebirth of social democracy
International Socialism Journal nr. 151, jul 16 – side 123
Note: The arrival of radical politics on the parliamentary stage across many countries has been spectacular. From Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Party in the United States to the unexpected election of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader, the emergence of powerful new parties like Syriza in Greece and Podemos in Spain, and electoral breakthroughs in Ireland and Portugal, the prominence of left wing electoral projects creates exciting new opportunities for socialists, but also raise many questions.
Charlie Lywood: Alternativ til venstre-reformismen
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 348, okt 15 – side 9
Note: SYRIZAs afbøjning over for de samlede europæiske herskende klasser rejser alvorlige spørgsmål for os som socialister.
Alex Callinicos: Analysis: Two faces of reformism
International Socialism Journal nr. 148, okt 15 – side 3
Note: In our last issue we advised the radical left in Britain to be “open to the sudden fissures that the crisis of the British state can…unexpectedly open up, perhaps making possible a qualitative advance”. And the unexpected came very quickly, and in a particularly surprising form.
Donny Gluckstein: Classical Marxism and the question of reformism
International Socialism Journal nr. 143, jul 14 – side 141
Note: We stand at an unusual place in history, both in Britain and internationally. It is more apparent than ever that while humanity possesses the means to abolish want, we live under an anarchic system that viciously assaults the working class and the poor across the globe. Yet the impact of this realisation on our movement is contradictory.
Paul Blackledge: Feedback: Once more on left reformism: A reply to Ed Rooksby
International Socialism Journal nr. 141, jan 14 – side 189
Note: Ed Rooksby’s response to the Socialist Workers Party’s criticisms of left reformism is exemplary both in its aim and its tone.1 I hope that my reply matches the standards he set. In essence, Ed suggests that the SWP’s conception of left reformism is akin to the claim that all cats are grey in the dark; it says more about our perspective than it does about the variety of political formations we criticise.
Ed Rooksby: “Left Reformism” and socialist strategy
International Socialism Journal nr. 140, okt 13 – side 83
Note: There has been a significant revival of interest among the radical left in “big picture” questions of socialist strategy that, as Mark L Thomas has pointed out, represents a return to “important debates of the left largely absent over the last three decades”.
John Molyneux: Understanding Left Reformism
Irish Marxist Review (Irland) nr. 6, jun 13 – side 22
Note: There is something of a vogue for left reformism on the left at the moment. I stress ‘on the left’ because it couldn't yet be described as a societal phenomenon, except with Syriza in Greece. It doesn't generally proclaim itself as left reformism preferring to sail under such flags as ‘fresh thinking’, ‘rethinking the left’ and ‘left unity’. Nevertheless the trend is real and perceptible both in Ireland and internationally.
Nina Holm Jensen: Parlamentarisme?
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 298, jun 10 – side 5
Note: Hvordan forsvarer vi velfærden mod angreb? Hvad er den bedste vej til forbedringer for arbejderklassen? Hvordan kommer vi tættere på målet om en bedre verden? Spørgsmål som disse har altid optaget socialister.
Tony Cliff: Economic roots of reformism (1957)
Note: Socialist Review 1957.

Ole Andersen: Den tyske revolution: Reformismens forræderi
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 179, jan 00 – side 9
Dorte Lange: Klassisk reformisme og den marxistiske kritik
International Socialisme nr. 11, jun 97 – side 4
Note: Diskussionen om revolution eller reform som middel til at ændre det kapitalistiske samfund tog for alvor fart, da arbejderklassen organiserede sig politisk i fagforeninger og politiske partier i slutningen af 1800-tallet.
Tom Christiansen: Reformismens krise
International Socialisme nr. 11, jun 97 – side 16
Note: Der er en naturlig sammenhæng mellem de problemer Socialdemokratiet aktuelt står i og den økonomiske nedgang, der har præget den vestlige kapitalistiske økonomi siden 1973, fordi Socialdemokratiet siden 1914 har bundet sin succes sammen med kapitalismens succes.
Chris Harman: From Bernstein to Blair: one hundred years of revisionism
International Socialism Journal nr. 67, jun 95 – side 17
Note: Socialist Worker editor Chris Harman looks at previous attempts by leaders of the labour movement to abandon socialist ideas, and shows how Tony Blair is obliged to be more right wing than his predecessors.
Andy Brown + Kevin Corr: The labour aristocracy and the roots of reformism
International Socialism Journal nr. 59, jun 93 – side 37
Note: 'Labour aristocrats' has long been a term used to explain why some important groups of workers continue to lend their support to the capitalist system. Marx and Engels used the phrase, Lenin developed it into a theory and it's been a staple of left wing writing ever since. But did the labour aristocrats ever exist? And, even if they did, were they such a vital force that they could explain the growth of reformism? Kevin Corr and Andy Brown's essay in labour history separates the myth from the reality.
Pia Larsen: Historien om hvordan reformpartierne holder systemet i gang: Reformismens svøbe
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 26, jan 87 – side 6
Note: DUNCAN HALLAS er ledende medlem af Socialist Workers Party i England og en af IS-bevægelsens stiftere. PIA LARSEN talte med ham, da han var i Danmark i december, om hvordan revolutionære forholder sig til socialdemokraterne og andre reformistiske partier.
Ellen Christensen: Rosa Luxemburg: “Reform eller revolution”
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 19, maj 86 – side 9
Note: Diskussionen om mål og midler i kampen for socialismen er lige så gammel som arbejderbevægelsen selv: kan vi få kontrol og magt over samfundet skridt for skridt gennem reformer, eller kan kun en magtovertagelse i en revolution sikre os socialisme?
Ian Birchall: Too much, too little, too late: left Social Democracy in the French Popular Front
International Socialism Journal nr. 13, jun 81 – side 74
Note: Recent developments in the Labour Party seem to have strengthened the case of those who argue that the left can make real gains by working inside mass social-democratic parties. Many Labour Party members believe it is actually possible for the left current in the Party to grow in strength and influence until it dominates the whole Party.
Sue Cockerill: Reply to left reformism
International Socialism Journal nr. 8, mar 80 – side 95
Note: A reply to Bob Rowthorn: “The Alternative Economic Strategy” (this issue) + Geoff Hodgson: “Britain's crisis” (ISJ2:7)
Geoff Hodgson and Bob Rowthorn have both made replies to Jonathan Bearman’s Anatomy of the Bennite Left (International Socialism 2 : 6). This article attempts to take up the points raised by both, particularly in relation to the Alternative Economic Strategy.
Ian Birchall: Social democracy and the Portuguese ‘revolution’
International Socialism Journal nr. 6, sep 79 – side 71
Note: It is now four years since the hot revolutionary summer of 1975 in Portugal. The Portuguese experience (together with the Italian elections of 1976 and the ‘social contact’ in Britain) marked a crucial turning-point for the European revolutionary left, whose ‘crisis’ Chris Harman analysed in Number 4 of this journal.
Colin Barker: A 'New' Reformism? – A critique of the political theory of Nicos Poulantzas
International Socialism Journal nr. 4, mar 79 – side 88
Note: For some years now, there has been a welcome revival in Marxist discussion on the State. Two names, above all, have been associated with that discussion: Ralph Miliband and Nicos Poulantzas.

Michael Kidron: Reform and Revolution – Rejoinder to Left Reformism II
International Socialism Journal (1st series) nr. 7, dec 61 – side 15
Note: This article will attempt to take up the case against Left Reformism, as it was presented by Henry Collins in the last issue of International Socialism, at the point where Alasdair MacIntyre left it.
