old comments[edit]

This page is undergoing heavy first drafting at the moment. Other contributors are solicited and welcome. I will be integrating material from the IISH (www.iigs.nl) shortly which will add to material on the formation and splitting of Solidarity. Also some anecdotes. Will improve the structure too.

I hope you do, As a holding entry it passes for now but it's not really NPOV is it? Far too much of a puff piece I'm afraid. Mind Solidarity weren't bad in their day.

Dear Jock,
Nope, its nowhere near NPOV. I'd invite some ancient Healyites over to give their perspective on the formation, but I don't know any (and doubt they'd be open to the idea of an NPOV entry on a split). One of the problems is finding genuinely critical material on them, because they weren't bad in their day. An angle through Soc ou Bar's membership's decent into pomo doesn't fit--because Soli avoided that decent. Classlessness maybe, but their half-and-half class and order-giver order-taker thing pretty much resembles class. If you've got a contribution, even if its just a spiel, I'll edit it in.

Was this the same group that used to publish the 'Journal of Libertarian Socialism in the 1960s?

unsourced since 2010[edit]

I removed some content that has been challenged for 5 years, and it has since been restored without debate or sources. I made several attempts to find a RS supporting Libertarian Socialism and failed. I suggest the editor self revert, and/or join the debate. Darkstar1st (talk) 19:18, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
