"Rule by the People." That's a good translation of "Democrat." Now it seems to me inarguable that the site's stated goal of "More Democrats" will be achieved when we have More Better Democrats. As they'd be the ones that most closely match the concerns and intent of The People. A Party which represents the people, crazy as it might sound, would be the party that gets the most votes.
I think we can get a good running start down the road to "Better Democrats" if we first ask, and answer, some fundamental questions. Such as:
• Are we in a Time of Crises?
• Is our Political Class up to what's needed?
Answer these questions and we have a better idea of what we need from the Democratic Party. And maybe the politicians will too.
There's an old saying: there's no such thing as 'almost pregnant.' A condition exists, or it doesn't. Crisis is similar, in that either one is present, or it is not.
Now, seems that people explain how their current reality came about using the terms of psychology, philosophy, the movement of the stars, Karl Marx, theories of power, sane or addled deities... all sorts of explanations. Those and our other favorite hobby-horses (and I have mine) are not what I'm trying to get our attention on. Mainly, for now, just get these questions answered. Though, naturally, anybody who wants to share their favorite notion of how we got here, for good or ill, should do so.
Please vote, and please expound upon your vote. Thank you.
