Intressant artikel av Jon Cruddas och Jonathan Rutherford hos Compass:
”This should be the moment of the left, but it too is trapped in the same interregnum. It lacks a coherent identity, is organisationally and numerically weak, and is unclear about its values. It has no story that defines what it stands for. The self-inflicted crisis of capitalism is serving only to highlight the weakness of the left.
We need to address the big questions of how we live as well as how we create wealth. What kind of society do we want to live in? What kind of economy will sustain it? None of the mainstream political parties have the language to ask these questions. . We need to re-invent a plural and ethical socialism rooted in the ordinary life of the individual. The central value of this socialism alongside liberty is equality, because in our differences we share a common humanity. The democratic search for self realisation lies deep in our culture and involves the right of everyone to achieve their own unique way of being human. This is not selfish individualism, it is mutualism: ‘your freedom is equal to my freedom’.”
