The Leftist, Socialist Group SDS Published a Pamphlet Titled ‘Socialism and the Coming Decade’ Changing Their Social Change Tactics from Stealth to Eschewing Controversy

A group that included past SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) national secretary Paul Booth, his activist wife, Heather Booth, onetime SDS field secretary Steve Max and radical community organizer Harry Boyte published a pamphlet titled Socialism and the Coming Decade. This creed said that because the U.S. had entered a “non-revolutionary period,” socialist activists should eschew confrontational tactics in favor of a stealth, incremental approach to social change. It further advised community organizations to agitate for concrete issues like urban redevelopment and health care, thereby giving “the socialist movement relevance to the daily lives of the people.”

Stanley Kurtz’s book Radical-In-ChiefBarack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism has an entire section dedicated to exposing this organization to the public, starting on page 131. Mr. Kurtz presents information and documentation that the public ought to be aware of so that we might begin to grasp the enormity of the socialist problem in our midst—from the White House on down. Mr. Kurtz, on page 131 of his book notes: “On Labor Day 1969, a group that included past SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) national secretary Paul Booth, his activist wife, Heather Booth, onetime SDS field secretary Steve Max and radical community organizer Harry Boyte published a pamphlet titled Socialism and the Coming Decade. Clustered several years later around an institute called the Midwest Academy, this group would go on to create a new way of blending socialism, community organizing, and electoral politics.
