“The claim that the abandonment of Keynesian policies in favor of neoliberal ones began with the 1980 arrival of Ronald Reagan in the White House is factually false. Indisputable evidence shows that the date on the Keynesian prescriptions expired at least a dozen years earlier. Keynesian policies of economic expansion through demand management had run out of steam (i.e., reached their systemic limits) by the late 1960s and early 1970s; they did not come to a sudden, screeching halt the moment Reagan sat at the helm.”

From “Keynes is Dead; Long Live Marx!” on Counterpunch. (The same point has been made in many other places.)

I was hopeful at first, but the blatant blind faith in Obama being anything other than yet another profiteering capitalist warmonger makes it painfully clear there is no communism in your party, you appear to be nothing more than the Democrats equivalent to the Republicans tea party. You should be forbidden from using the name Marx or Communist. You are nothing but frauds. After the Obama administrations blatant assault on Ukraine and the installation of high ranking Democrats at Burisma holdings, the thought that their ideology is any different than that of the Republicans is laughable.

Nice try Soros and Archer.
