Im doubtful that it can be made too in a more left humane way. I dont see the vehicle to deliver the pressure that has been there in the past. I do see the continuation of the rightward momentum though. There doesnt seem to be an alternative.

Really? Maybe an alternative is as plain as the nose on your face - you just dont want to see it.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
