Jeeze, I don't know about that Gregor. I admire his tenacity. Respect his policies for the most part. Don't know if my sense of love is involved. I'd love to see him win maybe?
My take is that neoliberalism has helped set the table for authoritarianism at home and abroad. Any of it's supposed successes of progress have been shown to have no permanence economically and socially. That it's scapegoated both the left and right for it's shortcomings for decades now and it's to the right of where most Americans are. At least now they seem to be. But they do hold the power within the democratic party.
At the end of the day they have more in common, economically speaking, with the right than with the left anyhow but I repeat myself.
I have noticed a level of admission coming from the neoliberal camp and it always invokes a level of suspicion and mistrust within me to loop back to our emotions. I was surprised to read an example in 'the New Yorker' magazine: A New Role for Democratic Centrists: Helping the Left Win
But I would take issue with Kilgore that neoliberal's are center left. I'd like to hear his one sentence definition of what he thinks 'left' is politically and socially.
Second, he doesn't cop to the fact that the party structures for campaign funds and rules are dominated by centrists/neoliberal/ordoliberal whatevers and they have no intention of allowing for more leftists run and possibly increase their influence in the party.
Cuz it's easier to steal the language of the left than it is to enact any of it's popular policies such as Sanders has campaigned on consistently.
