A profound transformation of our very state-form is occurring. A new form of global capitalism is being created. The Liberals (progressives, the left wing, whatever) studiously pretend nothing is happening and everything is peachy gooey. I like Hillary, I supported her, but let’s not pretend like it wasn’t the most out of touch campaign in the world. (After Bernie’s, I mean).
People intuit, however, that something is not right. Their anxiety is exploited by a cunning and immoral billionaire who is propelled to power by simply acknowledging that something is going on and the people’s anxiety is real.
The Liberals (progressives, the left wing, whatever) look at all this and decide that the way to deal with the situation is to mask the symptom and pretend there is no disease. Remove Trump and we can all go on pretending that more and more people will need disability or some other form of UBI simply because they are eager to “try out new ideas” and not because the new form of capitalism has turned them into human waste. We can all go on pretending that toilet signage is our greatest social justice cause and big business is supporting it because it suddenly became super progressive.
Kushner, schmushner, the most enormous planetary transformation we are to witness in our lifetimes is underway, and this is what we are on about?
