Is the Green Party of England and Wales Liberal?
There's gap in the political market place for a real radical Left alternative and now would be a very good time to start talking about a genuine eco-socialist party because neither the Green Party or the Labour Party qualify.
The Green Party is a radical liberal party that won't touch class politics with a barge pole despite the fact that the elites support and participate in a culture of massive over consumption, politically they support the hydro carbon economy and their militarism is highly destructive. If the Green Party is going to achieve its objectives their power MUST be broken.
The cynical and well orchestrated destruction of Jeremy Corbyn's reputation by the media and the Labour Party political elites proves yet again that the Labour Party is a grave yard for any kind of politics that is not totally safe for the establishment and if, as seems likely, Labour lose the next election we are faced with the total marginalisation of radical progressive politics at a time when the living world needs massive change from our species.
Being in my mid fifties I've seen all this before. Surely there has to be a better way than this constant cycle of defeat for the radical Left? and if we believe that only far reaching revolutionary change is going to stabilise our relationships with ourselves and the rest of the living world then we need to find that way.
Personally I don't believe that today's radical Left are the worthy representatives of a vital body of political ideas. We need much greater self belief and with that confidence will come a capacity for critical introspection. Only the best is good enough for the hugely difficult task of transforming society and we now need to go through a process of development in order find our best form, establishing our own political space is an obvious starting point.
