Facing the obvious: the reign of private property has undermined real democracy

The framework of ‘democratic market neo-communism’ is flexible and open but it requires seeing the reality of what is happening to human ecology in the steady expropriation of all human/planetary resources by global elites. The current realm of the activist left is close to a joke in the way it waves flags and gestures slogans but treadmills in the growing impotence of all forms of radicalism that has proceeded apace in the last generation. The DMNC formula is different from standard archaeo-communist ideologies: it points to the need for a Commons to prevent the outcome of state capitalism. At some point the crisis of capitalism and climate change is going to make revolutionary options the same as evolutionary tactics. We can first simply make a declaration of the creation of a Commons and move to establish the gateway to postcapitalism.
