We confront a dangerous situation: democracy no longer exists and the electoral equivalent on any level is illusory. If x is not a democracy then we have to use other means to create that democracy. That was the point of the communist critique: democracy requires an economic transformation. On that basis we proceed with the requirement that whatever we do we must create freedom.That was the point of the garbled ‘end of history’ debate. Clearly ‘freedom’ is more than ‘free markets’. There is every possibility of a communist system doing that. But we can’t expect a fake electoral system to accomplish that. Then again it might. A time of desperation is coming, and we must consider the revolutionary, but we will have electoral options we didn’t predict as the crisis unfolds. That’s why a progressivist platform is insufficient. Let’s ask for what is needed, not just what is supposedly ‘possible’.
