    We will see were SDS goes. Will the new SDS go up in pot smoke or explode like a crudely made bomb? Or will button up Maoists or their kissing cousins in some other sectarian group call the shots?

    It seems like a good idea, and I hope it catches on.

    Concerns include re-fighting old battles in drag, the role of so many “older” people who don’t seem like the best “advisors” to me, apparently caught up in very particular analyses of what went wrong.

    I also heard that there was a ban on open tabling by communists. That’s wrong, wrong, wrong. I urge every involved student to read Kirkpatrick Sale’s book “SDS.” Getting over stupid red-bans was what made SDS take off. That’s a good part of what was “new” in the New Left.

    Anyone who proposes banning someone because they are communists or socialists has no concept of what a “democratic society” would look like. I believe that would be a society where we can advocate and work together to end this system of war and empire. It means we can form revolutionary organizations dedicated to a real program of change, and that we can freely discuss our ideas and strategies. That includes argument, but hopefully with respect.

    Those who want bans don’t trust people to think for themselves. It’s exactly the kind of narrowness that will bog any student group down in recriminating, non-productive arguments based on political identity, not what people are acutally doing.

    I’m an active member of SDS and I’ve not seen a ban placed on either socialists or communists. My chapter is even starting up a marxist caucus within SDS similar to an anarchist caucus.

    SDS is one of the biggest wastes of time ever to come out out of the liberal students’ communities. First of all, just like the old SDS, this new SDS will fail. Simply because they are fighting for a lost cause. Rather than spending time on more important things, they are wasting time on pointless conflicts, protests etc.

    The biggest mistake of all would be to give a student any power. And the idea of a non-representative gov’t is not possible. People need a leader, and if they didnt, the country would implode. SDS will never win.

    anarchists and socialists? I am russian. Ask any russian who lived under the Iron Curtain during the Cold War whether they want to go back to that. They will think you are an idiot. Which you are. Since those are the two things that will never go through in American Society.
