writing, local news and social democracy in the USA.

My book is nearly there. It took a lot of work. You could call it a summing up of my views. I am thinking should I self publish or seek a publisher.  Will I use amazon to sell my book. Cost to the buyer has been an issue to me as well. This consideration has lead me to not let the book be too big.

In Mallow especially in the main street the local business community have a big concern about the private company  being in charge of the paid parking regime. They believe that it is killing business in the town. They believe the council isn’t listening to their concerns. This story hasn’t ended yet.

The United States in the past has been handicapped by the confusion between communism and democratic socialism. This situation is changing. The weakening of the middle class and the attack on the poor has created a situation where new ideas are needed and where they are heard. Democratic socialism or social democracy is a main target and is an enemy of communism. Social democracy is anti communist. It is about greater democracy.  It is a call for a New Deal today. A self proclaimed socialist senator Bernie Sanders is challenging the billionaire class on behalf of the people. It is about making the dream of Martin Luther King and FDR a reality.
