This is an unfinished work in progress. Thank you.
Building Democratic Socialism or Neo-Communism: In this case a much more appropriate, dialectical, and definitive term would be Democratic Socialism instead of Neo-Communism. Both represent moves to reinvigorate Marxism and even Marxism-Leninism and Trotskyism while severing all association with Stalinism, Maoism, Social Democracy, National Socialism (Nazism), bureaucratic dictatorship, and State Capitalism. State Capitalism demonstrates itself as state tyranny via centralized bureaucratic control of the state and the party and in turn over markets, the military/security-industrial/financial-education/prison-intelligence/surveillance complex, and businesses. Party and bureaucratic dictatorship masquerades as true Marxist Communism when it is anything but Marxist, Leninist, Socialist, or Communist. It is similar to the big banks, transnational corporations, and the central banks and tax regimes dominate markets, businesses, politics, and governments while hypocritically championing free markets and democratic republics. Instead we have a faux democracy, an inverted capitalist dictatorship all dressed up pretty in patriotism, traditions, nationalism, and so-called free elections.
Building a Constitutional, Democratic Socialist World Republic or Global Cooperative: Our species must find ways to work and play together across our differences to resolve complex and overlapping global crises, wicked problems, and severe challenges. We must find ways to collaborate and cooperate. The most effective way to come together is for We the People of Planet Earth integrate our communities into a novel and evolving global cooperative or planetary federation. I envision this to be a Constitutional, Democratic Socialist World Republic with a World Parliament not of nation-states and stateless-nations but of representatives direct from the people of different regions and cities. We must move even beyond ethnic and religious differences to embrace the unity of our oneness as a living species while celebrating, within limits such as peace and responsibility, our various local cultures and ethnic traditions.
