The renewal of socialism in the United States has sparked renewed debate and discussion on socialist strategy in the advanced capitalist world. Once again, the relative weight of elections and mass struggle, and whether or not socialists can use (parts) of the existing state to effect a rupture with capitalism is being debated on the left. This talk will assess the Marxian theories of the capitalist state which inform different strategic orientations.
