Introductory remarks

More than ever “Socialism or barbary” today.

But a) problem of language and content - taking intp account past experience and failures, opacity of notions, updating past debates

b) strategical stakes - behind the notion of "transitional method" (or program) : how to fight within/against the capitalist world order ?


I- Back to “Socialism” and “communism” : what do we mean ?

Lessons from the past and present struggles ; updating notions and debates.

II- What “transitional strategy” to-day ? At what level ? What fundamental demands ?
