The 2009 Detroit mayoral primary ballot listed a candidate named D'Artagnon Collier. Collier is a member of the Socialist Equality Party. This thesis analyzes the Collier campaign, arguing that the campaign represents the continuity of a heritage of revolutionary theory and strategy worked in decades of working class struggle. Due to the importance of practice in verifying scientific theories, only an analysis of the legacy of working class struggles constitutes valid social science. Through such an historical analysis, this thesis derives certain scientific principles upon which the strategy for defending working class interests must rest. The Collier campaign based its strategy upon these same principles, representing thus an attempt to unify the scientific theory of Marxism with the practice of working class struggle in the era of globalization.
