A Radical Program for the 21ˢᵗ Century

Notes toward a program, not a coherent list.


  1. Impeach one or more of the conservative SC justices
  2. Repeal Taft-Hartley.
  3. Repeal the espionage act.
  4. Restore the anti-fascist media concentration and balance laws.


  1. Environment: act on climate change
  2. Economic policy: build Keynesian economic institutions
  3. Corporate law: amend the constitution to state that corporations have only the rights granted them by law, not the rights of natural persons.
  4. Women's rights: pass an Equal Rights Amendment.
  5. Establish national corporate law. End the race to the bottom in corporate law, so that the state with the least regulation on the power and formation of corporations (Delaware) no longer sets the law. Instead, make these laws nationally.
  6. Establish a right to unionize.
