Brian Stetten and Ruthann Amarteifio, wanting, and looking for, democracy!!

Brian Stetten talks of his published article--"Facing the Tipping Point of American Civilization"

'.....Now, here is the issue.

The Marxists are proving that they were right all along as we face barbarism unless we move to a socialist alternative. The very fate of the human race hangs in the balance of whether we can actually change the underlying nature of our economic and political systems. So the question remains, can social mobilization break the resistance of the dominant rich elite class and seriously contest the neo-liberal order? >><Now, here is the issue.
