Think of American politics as being a battle being waged by three groups fighting against one another:
1) Libertarian Conservatives
2) Progressive Liberals
3) Corporate Elites
The corporate elites have succeeded to reign supreme over the other two factions by distracting the American people with issues of “left” versus “right.” As a consequence, we have big business in cahoots with big government — otherwise known as “corporate socialism.”
The progressive liberals hate the “corporatism” of government, but they love the socialism.
The libertarian conservatives hate the “socialism” of government, but they love the capitalism.
So basically, the progressives and the libertarians have a common enemy — corporate fascism. But the progressives believe the solution is more government (i.e. “democratic socialism.”) Whereas the libertarians believe the solution is less government — thus depriving the corporate behemoth its partner in crime.
