While we have seen a reengagement with the idea of civic unionism by the
US labor movement since the collapse of the Cold War regime, we have
yet to see a systematic engagement in the arena of ideas and of culture.
Further, we have seen little movement on the part of the left
specifically to find ways to modernize its own ideas, to speak in the
language of the working class, or to identify with the local and
national traditions and popular culture, which hold such deep meaning
for the working class. The working-class movement risks future defeats
by one-sidedly ignoring this crucial dimension of the class struggle.
