Yes, Yeselsen is limited by sharing the politics on display in Tomasky's
:"Democracy." But this is a good critique of some of Kolko's work . Kolko
(and many who focused on "corporate liberalism") tended to see fruitlessness
in popular struggles which they saw as resulting simply in what the
corporations sought anyway. This led to a certain cynicism in contemporary
politics and condescension to those groups that had not developed what James
Weiinstein (and others) often called a "coherent alternative ideology."
