The mess we are in How The United States Ended Up With Two Right-Wing Parties

No difference in the UK, where the "left wing" labour party drove forward neoliberal agendas for over a decade after Margaret Thatcher lost power, then were replaced with the officially right wing Conservative party who've been in power ever since, striding blatantly towards fascism while the Labour party instituted a coup against their own socialist leader and lurched to the right like they were on a bungee cord attached to the fascist bandwagon.

@LearnTribe @Hamishcampbell Even I didn't quite realize the full magnitude of the problems that the Labour party has until I started following the recently ejected Corbynistas. I was expecting that some of them would become anarchists, but that seems not to be the case for a variety of reasons.

Really we live in a one party state with a red and blue team who do a musical chairs act, which has little or nothing to do with the issues which ordinary people have to deal with.

@Hamishcampbell Do you mean here on Mastodon, in general? I use @OCRbot (just mention it in a reply to a post that has an image in it).
