Australian Left Review


Max Ogden


ANY ATTEMPT TO DEVELOP deep going socialist change in Australia will be impossible without a working class and trade union movement well educated in revolutionary, marxist concepts of society. In fact, I believe, the crisis besetting the union movement from top to bottom is basically ideological. Given that as the basis of the problem, the marxists and conscious left in the unions have to devise a long range strategy for revolutionising the movement. This means setting about the job of educating union members to give them the potential of being able to see the contradictions in society. However, before we race off to take Marx, Lenin and Gramsci to the workshop, we need to have an understanding of just what we are trying to achieve.
