Re: [socialist-econ] Re: A different take on what happened and going forward

Dear John, please take me off the socialist-Econ list and blogger socialist. 

 It seems to me that especially in this time when "nasty" is the pinnacle of politics, another way of responding is in order. I always think of George Meyers' words- to disagree without being disagreeable.

I told my sobbing daughter who said through her tears that she was so afraid for the future and asked, what can we do, the only thing I really could think of that made sense: we have to weave the bonds of community stronger and broader, love more and dig deep for the courage to do and stand up for what is right.

I hope to live up to those words. Appreciate your attention to my request. Thanks, Terrie

Not an ounce of data this. I would call it analysis, if I had the slightest idea what it meant, other than a call to further "strategic" studies and inaction. It shuns economics. It abandons class as a relationship to economics. It shuns the F word. It shuns Marxism, which is OK by me since that ism is no less confused than the half-baked liberal speculation offered in its place. Good liberalism is at least evidence and data based. Lecturing the "white working class" -- IMO, a fraudulent, racist concept from the git -- on their sins is a meaningless and futile tactic. Maybe that's not what Sam is saying. Maybe I need to go back to school to understand.

But until then..

This leads nowhere. AND -- it is NOT serious. Not a moment of self criticism: which every critic on the left, at least, to should include at the outset.

We have to do better
