Socialism if it is going to be attractive to millions can’t simply speak of economic planning, growth rates, and the provision of material goods. It also has to tell a story of a society that expands the boundaries of human freedom and equality, situates ordinary people in the center of the decision making process, gives life to the full, free, and many sided development of the individual, and paints in many colors the diverse array of collective and ecologically sustainable living and working arrangements.
