The Problem with Liberalism

I posted this at the Democratic Freedom blog:

I think liberalism's failure is one of nostalgia. Our economy and culture is as different from FDR's first 100 days, as that era was different from 72 years before that, when the Gulf states were forming their own confederation. 1965, perhaps the height of Democratic power, is as distant now as 1925 was distant then.

The Democratic Party must remember that it is the party of the people, of the little guy. Policy, platform, and ideology should follow from that, and not from yesterday's notions that "Government ought" to do this and that.
