The greatest challenge facing social-change organizations is learning how not to split.

Splitting signals a failure to cooperate among those who want the same thing, and repeated splitting is immensely discouraging. Unless the problem is handled politically, members will mistakenly conclude that it is impossible for people to work towards a common goal, and they will drop out.

Learning how not to split is critical for socialist organiztions. Had we learned this back in the 1970s, the socialist left would be many times larger today. But we have not learned it, and we remain relatively tiny. Since our primary goal is to grow, we need to examine what are we doing wrong, and what we must do differently.
