Democratic socialist, or more appropriately, I think, a societal democrat, what makes it different from the democrat?
That idea of answering to society, actual society and the people, and looking out for their needs.
The current dominant wing of the Democratic party is that of corporate or capitalist democrats. Meaning money and power are the things of value, the things that sway votes. The things that determine votes, and policies. The powerful determine policy.
With a Social Democrat, the people determine policy, it is the people given the power
One represents the majority of society, of the actual people,
while the other represents The interests of the money and capitalism
People or money, who do you represent?
People or money, which do you want to dictate policy, dictate freedom, dictate the future of society snd the future of the planet?
