Can the rich be trusted to fix a breaking world? Or should the real resistance unite beneath one banner?
I do think that left and right populists should find common ground. Both party establishments are crooked. Yes, Trump was deeply flawed. But Trump was necessary to shake up the status quo and to open eyes. More government is not the solution. The government should be minimal because power makes untrustworthy people. What do you mean by progressive? In the last decades isn't it just a synonym for hypocritical? If progressives really believed in climate change they would be more serious in addressing it in their own lives rather than laying the sacrifices at the feet of the middle class.
Radical unity and execution of progressive economic action is the only path of successful resistance to the radical unity and execution of regressive economic action/status quo, as promoted and enforced through our current state of “ruling-class capitalism”.
Now the question is; how far am I willing to go to participate in it?
it’s worth taking an honest inventory of how #resistance harms the left in their ongoing project, b/c the #resistance 100% aims to [further] deneuter the left in their longterm project. what tactics currently fracture the left? what tactics do consultant-class use on a daily basis? how do their tactics inform us about their strategy? who do you see getting the most traction with those tactics?
these are just Qs to keep in mind. maybe they’re helpful. maybe not.
To be fair, even if Sanders were to take office this afternoon, he would quickly prove weak and ineffective.
The time for a Sanders is long past. A Huey P. Long is what is called for now.
Thanks for this one, well said.
THANK you! We'd ALWAYS felt "the Resistance" pointed straight at US! It wasn't like there was any effort made to conceal THEIR dopplegangster, tag-team kleptocracy (aside from a guy from Flint, MI, I'm the only pfay, working-class goyim in the UWS, who'd been online all the 8th, knowing Debbie, Robby & John had thrown another election (and whom Creative Class™ PMC & retired yuppie liberals would blame!) My boss thought I'd wanted a LONG gig in France, Germany or Northern Ireland; I took a gig in Steelton, PA. It don't mean NOTHING, not a thing?
