Equality and Freedom
This concluding chapter argues for a democratic-socialist, internationalist left that seeks not only to smash the state and crush capitalism but to pursue human equality and realize the four freedoms. It would not be a fully “socialist” left in the sense that it would not institute central economic planning; it would be aggressively redistributionist, and it would harbor no illusions about “free” markets. It would therefore establish an egalitarian, closely monitored and regulated market that fosters innovations and promotes policies that bring food, clean water, housing, schooling, and medicine to all, as well as establishing forms of political democracy that extend to every person born: male and female, straight and gay.
