This discussion is so pathetic. The Republicans babble on about free-market principles, and the Democrats babble on about race. Both sides are willfully deaf to what the voters screamed at them. Try this: "I WANT MY CHILD TO HAVE A FUTURE."
If Jeremy Corbyn wins the British election Thursday, it will be the same message. It is not about left vs. right. When will these self-referential mumblers figure that out? Each of them, Democrat or Republican, is defending a status quo that has failed dismally - has turned the silk purse of technological progress into the sow's ear of increasing hopelessness - and cannot figure out that their personal definition of comfort is, precisely, the problem.
