I think there's some truth to Martel's claim that the economic left does a considerable amount of wailing about our being "individually helpless in the face of huge, sinister corporate interests." I've seen/heard that done, and it's both pernicious and counterproductive. It's the source of the perpetual "I'm only one person, there's nothing I can do" excuse.

I disagree, however, with Martel's claim that the economic non-right claims that "the only hope" for fixing individual helplessness [for those who fall for that one] is "a union and a big left-wing government." There are very large contingents on the non-right who are just as opposed to big government as those on the right claim to be, and who believe that hope lies in building community, not in building big government.


Emphasis mine.

BTW, the "Martel's Claim" link is a total red herring. No need to click on it.
