  •  I'm not saying the WU and the SLA were effective. (0+ / 0-)

    THEY WEREN'T. Neither was MOVE in Philadelphia. But they were the LAST.

    I am also not an adherent to Marxism. Marx was good at analyzing the problems with 19th Century Europe, but he was bad at coming up with solutions. Aside from Cuba and North Korea there remains no country that has retained Marxist/Leninist/Maoist economics. Even the Leftist authoritarian governments in Venezuela and Bolivia are best described as post-Marxist in nature.

    I am just saying that there is NOTHING on the Left that makes a remotely credible threat to big business in the US at this time. So being that the Masters of the Universe have no anti-Capitalist movement that poses anywhere near a threat to their livelihoods, it is quite likely that the stimulus we need to get out of the "Great Recession" (I still use the D-word to describe what we're in right now) will never be applied, and we will not see WPA-like mass job programs to deal with the unemployed.

    The next OneCare Happy Hour will be January 29, 2010.
    Anti-marriage equality = bigotry

    •  I agree with you. (0+ / 0-)

      The crisis we presently find ourselves in provides an opportunity for real change but we are essentially throwing a 30ft rope to the man drowning 50ft off the pier.

      Thanks for your thoughtful and intelligent comments.
