  •  Is this a 'Party' blog? (3+ / 0-)

    The site purpose is to elect more 'better' Dems.   To me, that implicitly acknowledges that the Party is not living up to its ideals, and that it needs reformed from the inside.   And the line between 'socialism' and 'capitalism' is never sharp.  Our capitalist society depends upon socialism, indeed, the very nature of government is that it exists to place fetters upon capitalism and utilize funds taken from capital to deal with social needs.

    I don't particularly care whose name is attached to concepts; ideas stand upon their own merits, and thousands of years of history teach us that mankind progresses most equitably and quickly when we cooperate, and such cooperation requires sharing.

      my statement.  Better Dems are a long way from Marx.  Nothing I said precludes cooperation.  Moreover,  what I said was descriptive.  Kos is not a Marxist and few, if any,  better Democrats are.  I would even suggest that Socialist Bernie Sanders is not a Marxist.
