We need - you and I - to talk about communism - socialism . We live in a wholly trinity: socialeconomicpolitical.... none separate from the other... Communism is what we all want - the totalitarianism of refusal to give up our victory - that we attain by mass struggle - like what the Russians did in the eartly 20th century - won the ability to arrange to provide justice for themselves them all - material justice - everyone eats sleeps labors plays reads plays the piano plenty et al et al ad finitum. Material justice is the foundation of justice by-for all. This includes ending the 8 hour day, the work-day, the work week, work that accrues benefits to an Owner. We work for us all by us all, no age segregation.

You do not want USSR style communism. What that actually was was a totalitarian caste system where a dictatorship ruled at the top. Most people were surfs under a horrific police state. Few made up a upper class like generals and upper members of the party most had no choice over much of there life it was up to the state.

What i believe most progressives actuality want is more democracy even when in the work place. That was the attempts with unions however true coops employee owned and ran business honestly have proven sucess. More democracy more control of self has always been the core of progressives we first the vote to all white men not just landowners we than free slaves in this county. Gave all men the vote gave all works a voice with c! collective bargaining. Than gave women the vote than with the civil right movement we ended segregation. Progressives are about increasing democracy in the us and in the world our history proves this

Here's what the feud and reconciliation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson can teach us about civility

Thom plus logo Donald Trump did not invent the art of the political insult but he's inflamed the level of vitriolic public discourse and incivility to a new low unmatched by other presidents. In a tainted tradition that has permeated our history, other presidents have not been immune to dishing out acerbic insults against one another.
