Democratic right wing centrism?
Yep. Because that's all your gonna get. You can dream of a socialist utopia but it aint gonna happen in my lifetime or yours.
I will remind you once again that politics is the art of the possible.
The Soviets claimed to be socialists, the Nazis claimed to be socialists, Sanders claims to be a socialist, Venezuela claims to be socialist, France has a socialist party and a socialist government, but none of the people or places actually meet the definition of a socialist or socialism.
And I think that for Americans, it doesn't really matter beyond us just gleaning a couple of minor tweaks to use in the capitalist system to tilt it more in favor of the middle class. Outside of that, you'd be looking at converting our entire economy into something we've never tried in almost 250 years, and I don't think it would go well.
Countries which are capitalist but which have added a small smidgeon of quasi-socialist spice to their capitalism seem to do pretty well.
We did it and it worked beautifully, and I think we ought to try it again, and soon.
But going whole hog socialist? Naaah, I think it's a bad experiment for the United States.
And, I doubt it would ever gain traction anyway, for a wide variety of reasons.
But again, the biggest reason seems to be that we did very well just tweaking our capitalist system with just a dash of small s socialism and stopping at just that. It was a hybrid and it was very healthy.
And as for the Right wing, now that Americans have witnessed them in all their vulgar philistine glory, there will be a reckoning, and it will be very bad for the Right.
And whether or not we go socialist has little if anything to do with the fact that Americans will not tolerate this level of nastiness.
The repudiation of the Right will be swift, just and irrevocable.
