  •  Corporate = conseverative. Who do u think really (0+ / 0-)

    thought up, runs, funds and pulls the strings of all the cons?  'Economic conservative'? Natch.  'Social con', just another word for 'religion is the opiate of the masses'.  Sure they are some folks pining for the 16th C.  About 5% of he country.  Any country.  Right vs. left has been about corporate vs. people since the industrial revolution realy got going.

    Just because some Russian fascists hyjacked Marx doesn't make the Critique any less true. Ask TR, LaFoulette and the Progressive Party.

    •  Expanding the discussion would be useful (0+ / 0-)

      I see it along three axis:

      Conservative - Liberal

      Progressive - Regressive

      Authoritarian - Libertarian.

      Corporate is not just Conservative.  It's a combination of authoritarian, regressive, and either conservative or liberal.

      Because of these elements, it's very important that people don't equate Democratic with middle-class friendly.

      And because of these elements, it's very important that people see the various kinds of Progressives we have out there.  Not all are Democrats.

      EVERY US CITIZEN SHALL BE COVERED BY MEDICARE FROM BIRTH UNTIL DEATH.
