  •  Too much is made of "isms" (3+ / 0-)

    Communism is a dirty word in this country because of propaganda over a few generations. It is considered, without question, "bad" so there is no need to consider what the story is behind the term. It's actually not my personal ideology but I respect Marxism as a robust and rigorous intellectual tradition.

    What I'm interested in is pragmatism. I'm more a follower of William James than Marx. And my pragmatic bones tell me that the course we are on is just not practical or sustainable--has nothing to do with any ideology.

    Thanks for the comment.
