NATIONALISM VS. SOCIALISM
Bruce Ramsey of the Seattle Times
This is an objective op-ed that examines the two major parties' ideologies. It's not very long or deep, but it is to the point. And, it is a good read. It illustrates the contrasts between the Dems and the GOP, very well, in Poli-Sci 101 terms.
When reading this though, remember these points:
1. Not all nationalism is fascist.
2. Not all fascism is nazism.
3. Not all socialism is communism.
I do not have time to run a more complete critique of the article and there are a couple of things that I am not sure I completely buy. But, overall it seems to a credible analysis.
