Even if the many photos that adorn the site are not purchased from istockphoto.com or one of its competitors, they most definitely have the look of stock photos. They consist mostly of well-scrubbed and -coiffed Millennials of various ethnicities, some sitting and smiling or daydreaming or looking with intensity at the camera, some conversing, some doing what looks like work.
I'm looking forward to a time when MPP can replace the stock-looking images with actual of People's Party activists in action.
And I'm quite OK with that.
As I observed back on my last birthday, the MPP platform echoes the Green platform in many respects, albeit with less of the overt Gaia-consciousness that serves as the Greens' philosophical foundation. MPP also is less overtly socialist (or eco-socialist) than the Greens. They refuse contributions from corporate entities and the über-wealthy. They refuse to work directly with progressive organizations that maintain connections with the Democratic Party.
If MPP has success in organizing state and local chapters and gets bigger, faster than GPUS, I would love to see the two parties merge, even under the MPP banner. I am more interested in seeing a thriving political expression of pissed-off progressivism than in preserving the Green Party brand.
