Based on George William Domhoff’s usual topic and issues taken as subject of his intelligent writing, he is advocating and pointing out the readers Equality, Fairness and Inclusion whether it is political, economic, social, or whatever aspects of citizenry it could bring. He is a great advocate of Political Equality. He assures public that the only way to come up a better America and a grand political success is to have full force of alliances with a touch of modern strategies.
With his intelligent analysis of the political problem, which rooted from the basics as he attempt to provide possible proposals, he eagerly noted misconducts and misconceptions in politics and political genre. After which, he intellectually provide us serious but viable alternatives solutions on problem related to politics. He successfully envisioned the inclusion of the Leftist in the Democratic Party and some possible alliances. Conclusion
To conclude, I would like to recognize Professor George William Domhoff for always pointing out this vision, and from his presentation, I have realized and learned this powerful idea: That freedom and equality is relevantly relative and connected to each other in order to gain full potential and fulfillment.
