My impression is that the wide popularity of these movements is based on
common desire to return the system to what is perceived it's "normal

at this stage, they are widely supported.

Hey Felix, Alex, I feel there is one kernel of radicalism that I think is currently widespread, perhaps even held by the majority, and that is that healthcare, education, child care and housing are not provisioned well by the market system.

In discussing how best to deal with these issues in non-market ways, perhaps quite radical ideas can be discussed, and considered by many who would not consider themselves radical.
