“A politics of collective action involves conscious and combined efforts to build a new kind of economic reality. It can be engaged in here and now, in any place or context. It requires an expansive vision of what is possible, a careful analysis of what can be drawn upon to begin the building process, the courage to make a realistic assessment of what might stand in the way of success, and the decision to go forward with a mixture of creative disrespect and protective caution.”
