Post-Covid19 will be prime time to initiate fundamental reformation that can expand Democracy to include the New Millennial generation. 

This article lays the case for why Socialism could simply be the next step.  (Replacing the word Revolutionary to Rational to describe it’s post-modern evolution.)

My favorite quote from the audio transcript:  “I am for Socialism because I am for Humanity.  We have been cursed with a reign of gold long enough.  Money no longer constitutes a proper basis for civilization.  For we are on the eve of Universal change.”  Eugene V. Debs

Can’t happen.  Trumps father did that for Him when he was born.

Socialism is now post modern, and should be defined by that which issues it addresses.  (In an era of Climate Change Socialism becomes New Millennial because of our global connectedness.)  In this form of Socialism it serves as a means for the expansion of democracy.  Which is exactly what we need to make room for any fundamental reformation to take place.  (Without overly relying on fossil fuels and money to fund its manifestation.)

Just a bunch of feel good bullshit. But hey, good luck with that.

This sounds like something a right winger would make up and falsely attribute to the left, to make them seem ridiculous. Like something out of a Kurt Schlichter novel.

The way Trump openly states he only helps Governors who praise him should cost him the election no matter what else - Trump is not just President of his Fan Club.
