My support for the GND is double-edged, with a warning, made clear by the capitalist trash/rag Forbes, that it is apparently unlikely to happen and will actually destroy progressive change as the right leverages the idea for the ‘base’, and the phalanx of idiots emboldened by trump.
As noted here many times, our last years of a tolerable climate require a revolutionary solution however difficult of seemingly improbable.
We are about to lose a planet: what’s the deal with a GND that is a fantasy we still have a legislative government?
The Green New Deal aspires to nothing short of a wholesale re-imaging of our national economy, including the elimination of U.S. carbon emissions, creation of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed income. All of this would be accomplished in the space of a decade with taxpayer dollars.
