Capitalism could not survive if it weren’t able to convince most people—through its control of education and cultural institutions—to accept it. But when that fails, they have strong institutions in the form of police, soldiers, and courts, to ensure the status quo. Changing society therefore involves both changing minds and challenging the power of the ruling class. The working class needs its own party, not only to count its own forces and educate itself, but also to gather enough strength to win. What kind of party must it be? It must be more than a party that seeks electoral office—it must be a party that participates in all the myriad partial struggles against the system, bringing into its ranks the best, most conscious fighting elements to lead a challenge against capitalism as a whole.
