Daydreaming socialism…progressives treading water

‘Progressives’, as noted many times, pronounce hopefully on a program they can never hope to bring about because it implies a revolution they have given up to nonviolent tactics and insufficient resolve to bring it about. What does it mean to ‘renew democracy’ if ‘democracy from the start has been captured by capitalism?
The inspiration of Sanders is wearing thin: he has never really been able to accomplish anything and even if he were elected he would be unable to do anything. A real democracy requires more than the generation of wasted effort we have seen for fifty years since the danger of climate change became clear…

Why now is the exact right time to advance and fight for a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights.
