Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All
Saturday, November 14, 2015
I'm a registered Democrat in the United States of America in the brutal and debasing years of its imperial plutocratic consummation, in the ruins of neoliberal globalization, universal precarization, and ongoing ecological catastrophe and yet I am still a believer with Michael Harrington that "the best liberalism leads toward socialism. I’m a radical, but... I want to be on the left wing of the possible." To conjoin democratic radicalism with partisan compromises is a pain in the neck, fraught with peril and error, but in my view just as vital and necessary as ever.
