    how exactly do you get progressive tax or progressive anything without the rule of law and democratic governance?

    Organizing the non-Lesters is a good start, for sure, but there's no denying we're in a bad spot and this problem is an exceedingly tough nut to crack. It's an economic and political trap that was designed 40 years ago and we're at the end stages of it.

    Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in.

      I'm assuming a baseline of democracy and the rule of law. My point is just that I don't think Marxism inevitably leads to revolution. It could just lead to a well-run democratic society.
