Socialist Cadre Training

“”All courses of action are risky, so prudence is not in avoiding danger (it’s impossible), but calculating risk and acting decisively. Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes of sloth. Develop the strength to do bold things, not the strength to suffer.” – Niccolò  Machiavelli.

Communique 11: 19/9/19

Taste of Power: the great municipal socialism game is a mass-participatory role-playing exercise designed to teach activists about how to operate in and against the local state. In this game, a recently elected Labour Left local council must battle with the legacy of their neoliberal predecessors and halt a disastrous redevelopment scheme. The game will be hosted and umpired by Class Wargames, designers of The World Transformed 2017’s A Very British Coup mega-game. A Taste of Power was specially produced for TWT‘s 2019 festival in Brighton.

Join us at Pelican House to get an insight into the difficulties of being a political radical in government.
