Green and Red, ecological and working class movements are compared in terms of their leading ideas and fundamental political attitudes. While both types of movements share a certain number of problems and the ensuing risks, the green movement has some advantages, in part because it comes historically later: it does not rely on an idea of history as progress, it does not believe in the decisive social role of (centralized) power and politically organized leadership claims. In its realism, it is held to be even more profoundly materialist than the working class movement.
