Sanders, Warren, AOC revive democratic ideals
Yes, democracy. You know, that of, for and by the people thing. This article shows that what they're proposing has a long American history going back to Jefferson and Debs.

Again, see my IR paper "From capitalism to the collaborative commons" for how we progress beyond a defunct capitalism.
