The Netroots

Matt Stoller trumpets his own movement in this piece at TPM, and he has harsh words for the online right:

The right-wing blogs don't organize, don't innovate, and reflect the larger structure that was put into place over the last thirty years by right-wing organizers who made their bones in the 1970s. As a result, there is no right-wing Moveon, no right-wing Actblue, or Free Culture movement. They have no new ideas, whereas our ideas are expanding into social systems that generate new streams of revenue, information, or just get lots of organizers to a bar to drink and network.

The reduction of political conversation and discourse to the demands of political power and activist organization is inevitable. But don't blame me if I stand aside.
