Sadly, I think you are right. The divisions that exist between right and left (or more accurately, between those who worship at the altar of capitalism and those of us who are open to a more socialist-leaning system) are too deep and too wide to bridge. There will never be a meeting of the minds. The hardcore capitalists see anything and everything that relates to the public good as nanny-state socialism and thereby inherently “evil” and will never give an inch toward the kind of reforms that are needed. They would rather die than go left. Or more accurately they would kill us progressives first, and do so enthusiastically.
A heavy dose of socialist policies, investing in the public good, is the only thing that has a snowball’s chance in hell of saving us from our eminent collapse. But those reforms are never going to happen because too much of the population has been thoroughly brainwashed to think that capitalism in any form, even this winner-take-all brand of it that exists now, is better than any form or degree of socialism. It is the collective stupidity and arrogance of the capitalist worshiping, imperialist masses and their stranglehold on our government that is going to be our final undoing. The coming crash of this stinking empire of greed, global genocide, and environmental destruction is inevitable.
