“The Disastrous Failure Of Lesser Evilism” and the Failed US Two-Party Duopoly

This critique of Dems from the Left, is also an excellent analysis on the utter breakdown of our two party system. I’d bet the same case can be made from the Right against the GOP’s clinging to the widely unpopular Trump: ‘At least our horrible corporate candidate isn’t the other slightly worse one.’

Pathetic, my fellow citizens. Absolutely pathetic.

“Fatally missing from most liberal analysis (and political strategy) is that the main fuel powering Trump’s campaign is popular rage at the corporate corruption of the political establishment.

Unfortunately, the failure of union and progressive leaders to offer an independent, anti-establishment challenge to Trump leaves the right-wing an open field to exploit the popular anger.

…by bending social movement priorities around the singular goal of electing the Democratic Party, and by clinging to the false hope of one day “reclaiming” the Democratic Party from big business domination, the left is undermining its ability to defend people of color, women, immigrants, and working people generally from right-wing attacks.

The policy of covering up for the corporate character of the Democratic Party remains a central strategic failure of the unions and progressive leadership in America.”
