Originally posted by Bosse de NageDemarchy sounds like an interesting approach. I wish the Welsh well. But I'm increasingly inclined to think that politics is a dry well. You can make your political system better, but it won't matter much as long as there is no economic democracy. Real democracy requires each, and I think all that politics really accomplishes in the end is to fool people into thinking that political democracy is all that's needed. Politics tends to only legitimize current economic arrangements. I think progressives would do well to forget about politics for a while and instead concentrate on building an alternative economy. Change the economy and the politics will fall in line. And I think that after a century and a half of Marxist misadventures they are beginning to do just that.
Makes sense at first glance!
