That's not libertarianism...it's democratic socialism. And unlike libertarianism it's been tried, it's working, and it's spreading.

It's kind of like global warming. People deny that it's a thing. They call it another thing and point in a different direction.
I say science, and they say God.
I say Switzerland, they say Venezuela.
I say Sweden and they say Cuba.
I say Denmark and they say CCCP
Y'see?

The ultimate goal, I admit, is socialism. But only if Society wants to be socialist. That could be a thousand years in the future or never. If you don't yet understand social democracy, Please Read the WIKI explanation.

I think it's where we're headed. Witness the rise of progressives among blue voters. It scares the establishment. As it should because it is the beginning of the end for them. It is the new status quo. Where government works for everybody.

And I think that unless we start moving more quickly in that direction we might very well be doomed as a species.

Convince me I'm wrong. Please.


Greger quit weighing my words down to the nanogram. ROTFMOL
When I said "that's some libertarianism I can get behind", I started off saying "shee-it howdy!"
Of course it's "democratic socialism/social democracy" and of course it's Switzerland and not "Cuber".

And as far as "as it should be"...it's going to take progressives doing to the DNC what the Tea Party did to the old line traditional cons. We are going to have to do the Lefty version of "draining the swamp" and primary all the "conserv-a-dem" moguls who think it's okay to change the rules mid-stream so that progressives can't get in.
We ain't knocking, we're jimmying the lock and we're marching in whether they like it or not.

On the other hand when a heavy handed right wing dictatorship is overthrown by a leftist revolution and the winner tries to declare socialism...it never works. Witness, Venezuela...Cuba...the CCCP...
