”The struggle for socialism is, to borrow a phrase, world-historical. This convention laid bare the growing pains of an expanding movement, one learning to feel its own size, creating and maintaining a mass of internal political formations. All factions had their historical and theoretical inspirations, but you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone here talking about them. There was no time for navel gazing, for looking backward. There is a political moment here today. There is a political crisis already destroying much of this country. I heard the news of two mass shootings from the floor of the convention hall. These disasters demand diligence. They demand the kind of effort put in by thousands of leaders and tens of thousands of members who have dedicated innumerable collective hours in unpaid time over the last two years to deliver this convention.”
