Social vs. Liberal Democracy

This guy’s a serious thinker, with a broad view. Mainly USA, but recommended for its analysis of the British situation too; since we abandoned ‘social democracy’ – the great project of Attlee and Wilson – for ‘liberal democracy’ – Thatcher through to Boris and Brexit. ‘Late-stage’ capitalism, of course. His description of the ‘nastiness’ of present-day Britain (or England) is spot on.

My only hope now – as a ‘Dual’ – is that Sweden keeps to the old faith.
