  • In an economic democracy as advocated by modern day democratic socialists the tools of production and resources are owned by not by a small group of capitalists for private profit, but owned by Society and used not for profit, but for society’s needs. The decision on what to produce, how to produce it, and how to distribute the surplus arising from production are made (democratically) by the workers themselves…. I doubt an informed and involved citizenry would tolerate any of the crap which we now endure – wage slavery, debt slavery, endless wars to advance corporate footprints and the insatiable search for new albrit temporary markets, chronic unemployment, healthcare as a commodity, or an an XL Pipeline (injurious to Society’s environment and self-interest).

    The Dems and Repubs, owned and shaped by the capitalist class (the few) into an unholy alliance against the interests of the many. The major parties’ candidates (and its media cheerleaders) all support the economic system of capitalism and its now toxic wake.

    A vote for either major party candidate is a vote for the continuation of capitalism and a vote against democracy. Capitalism (rule by the few) is antithetic to democracy.

    Call it what you want. Eco-Socialism. Democratic Socialism. Economic Democracy. I agree with the sign, “system change, not climate change.”

    Reforms are a step. Revolution is the mechanism. Democracy is the goal.
