  1. Set apart from the song the quote you use is excellent. They all want what we want.

    And what is that?

    It is democracy.

  2. How far will this democracy stretch, Eric? What form will it take? Will it involve the (necessary) redistribution of wealth and power? Or will it be a means of legitmating the power of existing (or soon to exist) elites? Will there be economic democracy? Or do the workings of the market sit above and beyond the reasoned, argued, debated decision making of the people?
