Sounds great to me.
My own feelings on American politics are: imagine if the Left had a billionaire (as Trump was) but to run as a Democratic party candidate with an MMT program. As much as I like Bernie, he was for many people tainted by his Marxist past.
But imagine a rich, successful charismatic businessman who could push a left Keynesian program and say, “look, this is good for capitalism and the middle class!,” but at the same time have a quiet but sane policy on immigration, and not be some crazy Cultural Leftist, but instead focus mainly on economics.
I bet such a candidate would crush all those Neoliberal Democratic shills. That would be truly something.

Considering all the deportations Obama did, do you not think he had a sane policy on immigration?ReplyDelete
He did not. Not for that reason though. The number of violators is not a good measure of how "sane" a law is. "Considering all the arrests do you think a law against rape is sane?" Similarly there can be few arrests for a stupid law. Look at the Irish blasphemy law.Delete
I'll just leave this here.Delete
LK, more related to the altleft than Norman, but what are your thoughts on Zena O'Briens optics/boundaryism stuff? R/Badphilosophy was pretty vicious in it's mockery of her work, but I figured you'd be able to provide a more reliable account given your affiliation with the group and acquaintance with philosophy.ReplyDelete
