Like a priest preaching to children - only it's socialism instead of christianism: 1.says nothing new. 2.Sacrifices the complexity of every single concept for the sake of being understood. 3.Depicts the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela the way any priest depicts, respects and reads a Gospel. And 4.proposes no course of action - except of course solidarity, which is reduced to the sense of "love thy neighbour". Lebowitz's book is called "Socialism for the 21st Century" but, although he talks a lot about socialism (again: oversimplified, repeating the same ol' things, with christian piety), I really didn't find anything about the "why and how it must/will be built specifically in the 21st century".
