The Crisis of Capitalism and the Crisis of Political Representation History has taught us that there is no direct link between economic crisis and political revolution. Thefailure of Soviet socialism and the failure of European social-democracies can be traced to a commonorigin : the lack of intervention by the popular masses in the processes of social transformation whichhave been monopolised by the bureaucratic or technocratic elites. For want of a genuine democratisation of the political representation and of the modes of government, state centralisation has createda persistent fracture between a caste of professional politicians and the mass of citizens, workers, andrecipients. A new bond must be created between the social movement “from below” and the instancesof political representation
