No, just reasonable people who can fix capitalism instead of being so braindead and lazy that they think Marx will show them the way.

And someone who can differentiate between capitalism and corporatism.

if your position is we need to fix capitalism, you're at least halfway there, that's the stance of Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez, Respect!

funny you say that

because those would be the countries to look towards on how to fix capitalism

or really, for almost anything relating to quality of life

they had a lot longer to figure this out, America is still a wee lil baby

If you make 60K a year or more in Denmark, you are taxed starting at 60% of your personal income, and Sweden is comparably high. Some people might be okay with that, but I never would be. I doubt FDR would have been either.

And that doesn't even touch upon VAT taxes that suck the life out of smaller businesses. Corporations do okay over there, but businesses below that threshold are miserable.

FDR proposed a 100% top tax rate which eventually became 94%,
so I don't know what you're going on about.
