Apologies OP for sorta derailing your thread with this talk about council communists so here's a PDF of Mike Macnair's Revolutionary Strategy. Which is Mike Macnair writing a whole book about how do go from the current state of the left to building a mass party like socialists in the 20th century and overthrow the bourgeoisie whilst also trying to avoid the pitfalls of past experiments.
This book is very popular with the modern orthodox marxist/neokaut tendency, think the CPGB-PCC/weekly worker or cosmonaut/Marxist Unity Group.
Audio version too incase you want to listen to it instead, be sure to read the preface in the linkhttps://cosmonautmag.com/2021/09/audio-book-of-mike-macnairs-revolutionary-strategy/>>9036>According to this shared view, the transition to communism is not something that happens after the revolution.>Communisation, then, is the immediate production of communism: the self-abolition of the proletariat through its abolition of capital and state.>the proletariat does not generalise its condition to the whole of society, but dissolves its own being immediately through the abolition of capitalist social relations.
These lines about immediate abolition makes communisation sound very… anarchistic… and the article really doesn't make a clear case on why Council Communism is the way forward to overthrow and abolish the Dictatorship of the Bourgeoisie as opposed to other marxist tendencies.

Firstly I think you're really
exaggerating the influence and spread of autonomists, and even if they're active in labour struggles all around the world…. so what? Trots, MLs, SocDems, Anarchists, and every other tendencies are active in labour struggles across the globe, autonomists also being so doesn't make them special. Nor does it disprove the accusation that autonomists are also out of touch with the working class.
Interesting that you go from talking about Council Coms to talking about Autonomists (no theyPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
