Democrats were and are “oblivious” about lots of things but only by design and not about money and power. They agreed with Republicans on almost every issue. Most Obama Democratic policies were an intensification of Bush policies. The few that weren’t were slightly weaker versions of Republican policies still far to the right of anything the vast majority of people wanted. And Clinton Democrats were worse on everything. Horrible on war, poverty, health care, unions, agriculture, media and other industry concentration, inequality, and most important of all, climate and all other ecological issues… to name a few. Anyone expecting them to be different on anything but abortion and gay marriage is deluding him or herself. And those are because they don’t really care and those are the positions they can fake that allow them to get away with everything else.
When will people wake up and either take over the Democratic party through unrelenting direct action or threatened boycott, or just leave? We have very little time left to institute an emergency climate mobilization and eliminate fossil fuels, chemical industrial agriculture and most meat production.
There are 3 groups in the US: the American Taliban, the comfort-addicted intentionally-ignorant, and progressives. Anyone who understands the consequences of the “American [sic] way” is progressive or radical leftist.
