The lurch leftward continues for America. Who’d have thought that, barely a quarter century after the spectacular indictment of communism represented by the fall of the Berlin Wall and implosion of the Soviet Union, that the two candidates for the Democratic Party nomination for President of the United States would both be lifelong disciples of Alinsky and Marx? Someone forgot to teach history (as opposed to propaganda) to the kids. As a result, an ideology that should by now be thoroughly discredited is enjoying a renaissance among the young.
Sadly, the GOP has its own addiction to big government, militarism and foreign adventurism, so there’s no real alternative there, either. Marxists to the left of me, corporatists to the right… stuck in the middle with you.
