The left has never adapted to the failure of the Communist vision and badly needs a new inclusive and relevant vision to oppose the oligarchs; not because they are bad people, but because the imbalance of power is corrosive. It’s not fair to attack language issues even though these conversations could be approached better and this aspect of this piece does not help. I generally like Umair’s writing because he focuses on issues of fairness and opportunity. Conservatives are not just for small government, but government that favors the .001 % and fails to protect opportunity for all. There is a place for a liberal libertarianism. Conservative libertarians rail against government intrusian while completely ignoring the elephant that is corporate intrusion and power. Finding a new vision must be the centerpiece of this conversation. What is your vision?
