Abstract

Dieser Artikel versucht, sowohl die Chancen als auch die Herausforderungen für die US-Linke nach dem Wahlsieg der Demokratischen Partei im vergangenen November abzuschätzen. Er skizziert zunächst das Terrain, das durch die Hinterlassenschaften von vier Jahren Trump, die Schwäche der demokratischen Mehrheiten im Kongress und in vielen Bundesstaaten, sowie die angespannten Beziehungen zwischen der etablierten zentristischen Führung der Partei und ihren progressiven und linken Elementen innerhalb und außerhalb der Parlamente strukturiert ist. Anschließend nimmt er die beiden sichtbarsten Strömungen des linken Aktivismus auf nationaler Ebene in den Blick: die Democratic Socialists of America und die Black-Lives-Matter-Bewegung. Ein dritter Teil (in einer der nächsten PROKLA-Ausgaben) untersucht einige der innenpolitischen Maßnahmen der neuen Regierung und ihre Potenziale für progressives Handeln unter der neuen Administration.
