social democracy today

  The failure of any system doesn’t mean that a brighter tomorrow will happen. All the breakdown of a system proves is that the present system doesn’t work. People will look for alternatives. Good and bad solutions will be offered to the people.

  When the free market crashed in 1929 different countries turned to different solutions. Germany turned to fascism. America turned to the New Deal. Sweden turned to social democracy.  Many people accepted communism. Other countries turned to nationalism. Not all of  these solutions resolved the problems caused by the Wall Street Crash. 

  Nationalism, fascism and  small changes to the system ignore the economic problems that caused the mess in the first place. Fascism and communism lead countries towards slavery. They are anti-democratic. Only social democracy can resolve our problems. Our present economic problems are like the problems that people suffered after the 1929 crash. People today have seen the false promise of neo liberalism. They are looking for a way out. They are looking for a new society. They could accept false promises of a new society unless social democracy wins the battle of ideas.

  The media today supports the present mess. We need a social democratic alternative. I am thinking of an online magazine. I was thinking that it should cover sport culture and fashion as well as news.
