Progressive Populism

Where the hell is it?

The working class populations in the United States, New Mexico and even Santa Fe are being challenged on all fronts in the current political and economic environment.

Aside from the machinations of the far right, the intellectual and financial pillars of progressive politics have chosen self-indulgence over truly democratic engagement and sat idle while corporatocracy became the dominant force in social, economic, military and foreign policy.

Two authors explore this dynamic in SFR this week: One through blunt analysis of privileged progressives and another through a step-by-step challenge to the entrenchment of corporate influence. Both articles were originally published with the online media community AlterNet.org.
