Vox Political ~ politics for the people
Mike Sivier‘s interesting blog. A source of useful political information and atricle supportive of a Democratic Socialist (1) Labour party. As before one should not rely solely on this, or any other, as the only source of information. But it can help focus and improve understanding of issues that and not covered in other media.
1. Democratic socialism is a socialist political philosophy which advocates political democracy alongside a socially owned economy, with an emphasis on workers’ self-management and democratic control of economic institutions within a market or some form of a decentralised planned socialist economy. from Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_socialism
And an american reference:
According to Mark A. Peterson, a professor of public policy, political science, and law at UCLA, Democratic socialism is “a call for the democratically-elected to use the public sector to promote greater equality and opportunity.” Those who identify as Democratic socialists believe in giving everyone the chance to find equal economic footing, and see free or low-cost health care, tuition-free public education, and universal child care as means to that end.
“Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few,” the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) website states. The DSA stands for restructuring our government and the U.S. economy “so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives.”
