  •  Why are you so sure (0+ / 0-)

    "it's not going to happen"? I think it very possibly might happen, and certainly could happen.

    You can't deny that all the various progressive causes share a common underlying theme, or perhaps gestalt would be a better word.

    This theme has yet to be formulated into a politically operative principle, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. As the current corporate/banking hegemony continues to rage out of control, worldwide, such an alternative paradigm becomes ever more imperative. And I would say, inevitable.

      It hasn't been done yet. And, I'm afraid, I don't really see any way to do it. People focus on what is most important to them.

      Take you, for instance. Your primary focus (or, at least, what I have seen you mention most,) seems to be--"the current corporate/banking
      hegemony"--which, of course, is very important, but nowhere near the top of some people's lists.

      Can't force passion.

        but you can at least have it. In the long term, history belongs to those who most passionately desire it.

        Most people's wish lists will not determine the future.
