  •  Maybe, but I hope not (9+ / 0-)

    Centers of coordination become centers of control, choke points that allow the oligarchy to maintain its grip.  I'd like to see a new model in which different democratic interest centers gain more cohesiveness and power, and make their demands on the central party apparatus.  It would be the job of the center to meld these interest centers into a coherent whole, while trying to satisfy all of them to the best of its ability.  

    Interests need not be "special," as the interests of the 99% expressed in the Occupy movement were not.  But a small-d democratic social infrastructure that could counterbalance the power of money in politics is what would best usher in a true liberal age.

    Citizens United defeated by citizens, united.
