We CAN Change the World

New Democracy works for democratic revolution. Welcome to our website! Please take this opportunity to explore and please share what you find with friends, family and coworkers.

Most Americans want a society based on real democracy and equality and on the solidarity and friendship that already exist among ordinary people.

But ordinary working people do not run the show. More and more, our world is dominated by a small group of extremely wealthy individuals who control the big corporations and the government and impose their values of competition and greed on the rest of us. Capitalism, like communism, is incompatible with real democracy.

We need a revolution to defeat this undemocratic elite and build a better society. Revolution is possible because people are already trying to change the world when they defend and promote their values in their everyday lives. The constant effort of ordinary people to do the right thing - to stick together, to share what they have, to listen to and help others, in spite of the persistent messages of capitalism to just "look out for number one," is the realistic foundation for a new world. The logic of extending this effort to all of society is revolution. This is the struggle that will define the 21st century and inspire hope of a better future around the globe.
