It was the Democrats' embrace of neoliberalism that won it for Trump | Naomi Klein | Opinion | The Guardian
While I don’t think Naomi Klein goes far enough in her prescription (unionized/welfare-oriented capitalism is not sufficient enough, as it always risks being once-again gutted by capital; we need full socialist economic democracy), her diagnosis is spot-on. An unholy mixture of nationalism, racism, and an anxiety-ridden neoliberal climate created the Trump presidency. We need to acknowledge this, let the Democratic Party crumble, build a new leftist party on the ashes, mobilize and empower people to reject Trump’s fascism, and offer real solutions to neoliberalism and capitalism as a whole. We can do this.
