I get the Zager and Evans song reference “In the year 2525”. Great tune. I also get that Lameocrats need to do much more than just say they aren’t the “other guys” and essentially keep the status quo for the 1% owners of America. I correspond with friends in Europe and read how their cultures, and governments, promote better standards of living for all citizens. They have many issues involving housing, for example, and some novel approaches that don’t involve profit gouging to provide affordable homes and renters a demoncratic voice in how much rent is paid for shelter rendered. Is this perfect? No, but at least there is an effort and political will badly lacking in America. So much potential here, so little accomplished.
