It is my opinion that (and it may be blasted by some (or all) of the participants here) socialists must concentrate their attention and resources on the cause of Socialism, and not confuse this cause with other essentially unrelated issues such as race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. The pursuit of Socialism is the pursuit of economic justice, and it is of prime importance, superceding these other issues, simply because it is impossible to enjoy any other kind of justice if one is economically oppressed. Economic justice must come first, and all other justices will follow. A sure plan for socialist defeat is to divide socialists on these other issues.
