“The Democratic Party is unable to produce leaders; it can only train, promote, and advance bureaucrats. Regardless of the issue, from the environmental crisis to universal health care to wars to racism and police brutality to the attacks on unions, the party is so deeply compromised that the best to emerge from its ranks can only embody the ability to speak into a microphone and be mediocre.
Even so, we should give credit where credit is due. The various politicians at least come from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, sexual orientations and genders, providing a stark contrast to the other corporate political party in the United States, the Republicans. The Dems are bold on all of the social issues that Wall Street finds either inoffensive or unimportant, but the diversity of the Democratic Party ends there. The ideological position of the party is homogenous; it takes its lead from neoliberalism and the world’s ownership class. This is precisely why Dem leadership has to yield to symbolism, pandering, apology, and superficial gestures.”
