@alraven3 I can't speak to Lenin's thoughts on co-ops just now because that's not stuff from Lenin I've read as of yet. Dual power occupies a central role in many forms of revolutionary leftist thought from Bolshevism to syndicalism. Co-ops for me are important insofar as they have the +
@alraven3 + potential to show workers a dramatically different way of doing business *under capitalism*, but on their own they are insufficient for building working class consciousness, let alone revolutionary socialist consciousness. A revolutionary strategy could entail co-ops but on +
@alraven3 + their own there's nothing "inherently" anti-capitalist about them, and worker co-ops exist quite extensively in some capitalist formations. Worker co-ops, not unlike other social-democratic reforms, are fully compatible with capitalism--simply having worker-owned enterprises +
@alraven3 + extensive social safety nets and so on wouldn't be sufficient conditions for the abolition of capitalism. W/o dismantling borders, imperialism, and the capitalist state, capitalism remains in tact and even social reforms such as worker owned enterprises can be recuperated +
@alraven3 + or abolished, so long as the fundamental structures of capitalism remain in tact.
