Response to Scuba (Original post)

Sun Apr 10, 2016, 09:47 AM

1. Neither party was ever built

 

To represent the working class and oppressed peoples. The New Deal came due to direct action by trade unionists, socialists, communists, neighborhood councils that forced a moratorium on foreclosures, ect ect. The people at the top who control the parties didn't just decide to hand out gifts one day. Until we have mass people power in the streets, at congressional offices, organizing neighborhood councils, using social media ect there will be no large scale change. Change comes from the bottom up. Same as the Great Society in the 60s.
