Social Democrats USA, again.

I was so happy when I found this statement from the Social Democrats, USA on their website:

"American social democrats believe unabashedly that the United States is a force for good in the world. (A view most persuasively argued in recent times by the social democratic Prime Minister of Britain, Tony Blair.) But our citizens and our government alike need continuous encouragement if our moral influence and our diplomatic and military power are to be used effectively to assist those in other countries who share our commitments to democracy and human rights. Some conservatives consider such commitments sentimental, or a drain on our national capabilities. Certain liberals and leftists scorn American efforts in behalf of democracy abroad as a spurious disguise for economic and military domination – an anti-Americanism that overrides consideration of the good that so often comes from such engagement, even under Republican Administrations.

The strident anti-Americanism and magnanimity toward third world dictatorships of some who claim loudly to speak for the left are once again feeding the perception that the left cares little about freedom. As in the conflicts with communism waged by past generations of the democratic left, social democrats not only must distinguish ourselves from the false left — we must take the lead in exposing and combating it. We know this enemy better than the conservatives, we know the territory better, and we understand the damage that can be done to good people and good causes when the battles that must be waged are conducted in reckless ways."


Hear, hear!

As an American, I wasn't aware of the Social Democrats. I learned they broke with the Democratic Socialists over Viet Nam, both parties of which claim (true) continuity with the Socialist party. Traditionally it was an antitotalitarian party, I am lead to believe. It is a lot different from the Democratic party (USA). They nominated John Kerry, even though they don't really like him because he voted for the war. The national convention that nomimated him was 90% antiwar, which is a much higher percentage than in its Social Democratic counterpart (by my guess). That is partly because the Democrats are one of the two parties, while the Social Democrats are a fringe party for which there is an alternative in the Democratic Socialist party. I wonder which of the two, the Democratic Socialists or the Social Democrats, have a greater following.

Sorry for the off topic but I didn't see a way to otherwise contact you. Maybe that's because of your color scheme. At least Andy gives us a black on white option. A blog is about writing and reading not eyestrain. Dude, white on black is really a pain. Please consider good old readable black and white.
