I read with respect Sanders’ platform on ‘our revolution’ but what we need at this point is an aggressive climate control program that can response to emergency, in the process setting a challenge to locos like Trump and his gang. Spending fifteen years trying to win elections in a gerrymandered phony democracy is not going to do it. We have ten years to do something about climate change.
People who are insane are relieved of command. That is the situation we face: the current culture and politics where the media can’t even discuss the climate calamity is as bad as totalitarian censorship and in any case shows that a loss of a sense of reality has overtaken the whole culture.
The whole Trump phenomenon has destroyed the basis of american democracy and we need to intervene for a reset. This may be impossible, but we can’t just proceed with politics as usual which is off its gourd.
