The Other Old Guys Are Only Half Right

Mostly because they still think you can blend Capitalism with Socialism, and that only worked for a while in the past; back when things weren't so globally competitive as they are now, and human skill as a commodity was still a good deal more viable.

Something that would instead blend Libertarianism with Socialism, seeking a better balance between the rights of the individual, and the needs of the community as a whole. The alternative I've been trying to articulate for the last 20+ years is, I believe, that alternative.

If nothing else, this needs to spark a critical debate that this nation, and the rest of the world, needs to have because, as any idiot can see now, what is in place now simply isn't working anymore.


What has driven so many young people into passionate political work, sweeping old socialists with old ideas to new heights of popularity?
