  •  So, were we socialist before (4+ / 0-)

    in the post-WWII era when the middle class was so well developed under Keynesian economics?

    That's part of the key in re-framing this...what is different since 1980? What did work before then until the gop-pushed change in eco systems that doesn't work now?

    The Republicans have made a fundamental change and a major mistake with regard to democracy and economics...that can be fixed to some degree. (We realize that the changes in corporate structure over time and with banking relatively recently are other great changes that led to concentrations of power. And a different job)

    So, you say, we not talking socialism, we're talking economic democracy. And then allege that what we have now is growing, malignant economic dictatorship.

    It seems to me there are plenty of powerful words to be used and more than a few counters to the 'socialist' meme.  

    The truth is we are tortured by the truth.
