How The Socialist Surge is Growing - YouTube
via Robert Reich on.fb.me/1Pn6XFK - According to a New York Times investigation reported this morning, just 358 families and the businesses they control have contributed over half the money to the 2016 presidential election so far – mostly to Republicans who have pledged to pare regulations; cut taxes on income, capital gains and inheritances; and shrink Social Security and Medicare. On the other hand, two-thirds of Americans support higher taxes on those earning $1 million or more a year, according to a June New York Times/CBS News poll, and six in 10 favor more government intervention to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor. And according to the Pew Research Center, nearly seven in 10 favor preserving Social Security and Medicare benefits as they are. To an extent we haven’t seen since the Gilded Age of the 1890s, the upcoming election is between a tiny group of super-rich and the rest of us. We must do everything possible to reclaim our democracy.

Simon Hix on the election of Jeremy Corbyn as the new leader of the Labour Party - YouTube
Movement (Bobble Head of our time that captured imagination of disenfranchised part of society which became disengaged with Politics because they had no voice and no impact and no shared views) - vs - [Labour] Party (something babyboomers and pensioners could voted for (if) it is properly framed, spun, communicated over and over again that they've sold out their kids and grand children for their own gain and capture of wealth and have to change course. because their kids and grand children are on a backfoot very much, already. and can not take guaranteed the opportunities and social and capital luxuries babyboomers, post-war gen (pensioners) have enjoyed and continue to enjoy. that they have to give up some of their pie).
