Ken Macleod on resurrecting liberty in American politics

Great rant from a Euro-lefty on the state of the American electorate.
Some of his ideas on ways liberals can redefine issues towards a more sane perspective -

Class. Give poorer people in the red states some good reasons to vote your way. Forget socialism. From the Babylonian captivity of the Walmart workplace and the Enron boardroom, normal law-abiding capitalism will start to look like the New Jerusalem.

Conservatism. Conservatism is not an ideology of world revolution. Neoconservatism is. Real conservatives know this. Make sure they know you know. Red-bait every ex-Trot neocon, and smear the rest.
