Canadian, Political stuff

Left/Right Populism

We are into revolutionary times and the left better have a better populism than the right. Selling social democracy where you try to provide for need without changing the system is folly. We must put neo-liberalism to the guillotine and declare there will be a new distributive socialist economy where there is ownership of power by the people. It can be done but not within current economic structures. Because, it is only through the power of ownership by the community, as a whole, of the means of production distribution, and exchange that we can save the world.
We are, old and young, in the political struggle of our lives. We are in the political struggle for life.
