For John, BLUF: Some on the left seem ready to jump off the precipice. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is the sub-headline:
It’s not just New Deal liberalism.
From Vox, by Ms Meagan Day, 1 August 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
I’m a staff writer at the socialist magazine Jacobin and a member of DSA, and here’s the truth: In the long run, democratic socialists want to end capitalism. And we want to do that by pursuing a reform agenda today in an effort to revive a politics focused on class hierarchy and inequality in the United States. The eventual goal is to transform the world to promote everyone’s needs rather than to produce massive profits for a small handful of citizens.Jacobin Magazine? Here.
Democratic socialists share goals with New Deal liberals. But they want to go further.
That seems to have settled that. Abolish Capitalism and replace it with socialism. Will there be an escape valve? Or is Caracas our future for ever?
Of course, if everything is produced in abundance there is no need for economics.
