2. I believe they're right but
there is still time to turn it around. Obama sends to be in denial that he's in something that needs to be turned around. He still won't admit that the protesters are mostly racist. He's got to recognize who's who in this.

3. Was hoping to hear something more targetted to capitalism . . .

but -- thought that "social will vs profit motive" was nice --

a good way to think about things.

:)

We could "fix" capitalism by re-regulating it -- resurrecting the New Deal controls/

regulations which certainly should be done. However, we are always vulnerable to

GOP/right wing propaganda which will continue to work to destroy everything other

than enslavement of workers in the end.

So -- I think we should just move on to Democratic socialism ---

We need to overturn corporations, needless to say -- that would be a good start!
