I am not a politically powerful person but only a concerned citizen of the Earth. I recognize the ambition of the aims I asserted above, and realize the possibility of the Left’s failure; many will dismiss all this as utopian. In future posts I will explain why it is not, and will also lay out the details of my political philosophy. Real policy change that saves our society and the Earth is eminently achievable, although certainly not easy. We already mostly know what to do, and in fact, solutions are lying all over the place; we just lack the political will to implement them. I will not merely offer social and political commentary, but as importantly I will prescribe and guide one way out of our political paralysis, a way that focuses on how to find our political will and unity. Of course, I don't think I have all the answers, and I certainly believe that we ought to rely much more on the wisdom of crowds. But as a political theorist who has given our current predicaments a lot of thought, and as someone who has some life-experience to boot, I want to contribute to turning this ship around. In so doing, I hope to help the Left find hope and confidence and fully recover from its formerly demoralized state.
If you despair for the current state of the world, take heart; this can be done, if we find the courage and political will to steer our ship in a new direction.
