Lifting The Veil Of The Co-optation of Social Movements

I will never be a Republican. I never value anything they value. I'm an atheist. I'm for people's movements and this is why I think this discussion on co-optation is worth watching.

It doesn't mean that frustrations and failures won't always be with humans. It doesn't mean that the Democrats are evil.

This Democratic Underground forum should accept that issues of national concern should justify constructive criticism of the party's leaders, not to mention the unregulated capitalist government they want to run.

Such parties serve the interests of world oligarchs, some of whom even criticize the morality of party priorities they benefit from. Such parties diffuse movements, negatively 'brand' them in their TV media, continue to ignore and resist the economic aspirations of people who want political democracy to be more than an "experiment" for America.

Through their Enemy Industrial Complex they distract The People with fear.

1. Basically agree. But Bill Maher, who endorsed Sanders and had him on his

show several times, put it well last night: Sanders was not espousing Socialism, he was promoting Santaism.

I know, Maher under bus.
