Was a Kennedy-Reuther-King-Wing possible?


Recommended Posts

Many of the most effective Kennedy bashers use much deserved cynicism about liberals of today and apply it to liberalism at a different stage of the US economy, the 1960s.

Is this conflation accurate?

Was there a potential of a social-democratic like liberalism emerging as the dominant strain of the 1960's? A strain with more emphasis on multinationalism and on continuing the gains made against income inequality during the New Deal.

In short, How did the four major political assassinations of the 1960s relate to the future further rightward movement of the party? Was there a direct cause and effect relationship? How does it compare to other variables in producing the post- assassination rightward shift of the Democratic Party?

Was the freezing out of Wallace and the radicals of the CIO a permanent death blow for the left of the party or did they possess the capacity to be thawed like the second coming of Ted Williams?

" Was there a potential of a social-democratic like liberalism emerging as the dominant

Yes.

An observation from the 1990 manuscript/book YROJ.......

No honest Conservative really believed that we were trying to do more than

call the Liberal establishment Communist sympathizers in order to replace

Liberalism with Conservativism.

But we unknowingly were being used to help install this present {ultra-conservative}

system that is surreptitiously wielding every power of the US. Government to force

the extension of a purely materialistic-religious empire that is intent on redesigning

the entire world in it's own "communal" image! An effort that includes brute force

and isolation of resistant individuals and entire nations.
