  1. è inutile lamentarsi per la legge elettorale, il nostro futuro non dipenderà da quella, ma dal programma che ci daremo, dal gruppo dirigente che rinnoveremo, e dal lavoro tra le masse che saremo in grado di sviluppare. Dunque la vedo non grigia, ma nera. Certo è che se volessimo guardar bene le cose come stanno, con un sistema elettorale maggioritario uninominale a doppio turno, col 30% si governa, mentre col proporzionale puro non basta il 50%. Perciò ritengo ad ogni modo più serio e conveniente per noi che la prossima legge elettorale sia proprio maggioritaria uninominale a doppio turno. Ciò favorirebbe la nostra fusione con altre micro forze della sinistra capitalista per fare massa, e ci costringerebbe a lavorare sistematicamente per egemonizzare la sinistra, attraverso un duro lavoro nei territori dove costruire un partito radicato e “pesante” tra le masse. Ci vorrebbe ovviamente un’altra linea, un programma rivoluzionario ed un gruppo dirigente all’altezza, e soprattutto le migliori competenze del partito per ricostruirne le strutture sfasciate, e farle funzionare a pieno regime. Spero che ci mettano una soglia di sbarramento del 10% così finalmente cominciamo a lavorare.
