NDOL: About The Third Way

NDOL: About The Third Way: “The Third Way philosophy seeks to adapt enduring progressive values to the new challenges of he information age. It rests on three cornerstones: the idea that government should promote equal opportunity for all while granting special privilege for none; an ethic of mutual responsibility that equally rejects the politics of entitlement and the politics of social abandonment; and, a new approach to governing that empowers citizens to act for themselves.
The Third Way approach to economic opportunity and security stresses technological innovation, competitive enterprise, and education rather than top- down redistribution or laissez faire. On questions of values, it embraces ‘tolerant traditionalism,’ honoring traditional moral and family values while resisting attempts to impose them on others. It favors an enabling rather than a bureaucratic government, expanding choices for citizens, using market means to achieve public ends and encouraging civic and community institutions to play a larger role in public life. The Third Way works to build inclusive, multiethnic societies based on common allegiance to democratic values. ”

This all sounds good if you are starting from the political middle. To bad Gore was cheated out of the White House and now the country finds itself to the far right of the political sector. The only way we will change our current course is to bear hard-left until we are sailing straight and then we can govern from the middle. Dean is the only candidate that gets this concept. He might look to be a lefty now, but once we have compensated for leaning to far right, he will move to the center. Watch and lean DLC.
