: Now then - is this 'market socialist' "possibilism" a help or a hinderance?

If the demands of moderates like Roemer arent achieveable then the demands of "impossibilists" (I dont think what they want is impossible, I'm only using what appears to be a popular label) definitely arent.

Why does everyone who insists that they are militants get so heated at people within thier own ranks calling for moderate reFORM? How can it be a hinderance? If anything it could be a very progressive watershed.

Take nineteenth century britain and it's poor law administration that devided the nation into regions for the administration of "poor relief" and enforced to regional dividing line as militantly as an nation state does borders no one is suggesting that Britain should return to that are they? I think this type of watershed marketism is more progressive than current lasse faire capitalism and if it was successful, that is, irreversable it would only symbolise a move to the left socially, economically etc.
