But in doing this

We can't be babes in the woods.

This stuff appeals to people for a reason; the reasons that it appeal to people, at the root, are things that socialism can address. So Socialists have to put forward an alternative vision of society which solves the problems which working class people experience without resorting to racism, ethnic violence, or general anti-liberal intolerance.

This involves going into territory which isn't always comfortable, but liberalism can't do the job. If we wait for the liberals to do something we'll have neo-fascists marching on Washington and taking power.
