What the left needs to reinvent itself

Good article about central and eastern European countries, but applicable to the US too. A couple of quick excerpts:

"It is precisely social-democrats, with their belief that capitalism will always need democracy, that opened the door for these current tendencies."

"Which would offer not only a convincing narrative of how not to fall into the abyss, but concrete measures for how to get out of our current predicament."

Speaking of US social democratic concrete measures, see the Congressional Progressive Caucus budget, just what the people's movement needs here. And speaking of narrative, also note the new Democratic slogan: For the People.
