Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left

The left lost interest because of the large-scale failures of socialism, ignoring its successes in quiet places like Copehagen and Oslo.

I think there is a triangle of forces at work in a social matrix -- vectors that absolutely require private ownership and individualism; vectors that require intelligent socialization of interest; and vectors that require balancing by majority voice. Democratic process, corporate process, and social process are not antagonists when they are done intelligently.
