TNCM ver 2
We are seeing more and more marches on Washington, but a basic version of that is still virtual: a hundred thousand to a million people with revolutionary aspirations could march on Washington and bring down the government, precipitate a revolutionary transition and force the issue of a new constitutional foundation. Unrealistic? It is hard to assess the dynamics here, but one strangely compelling fact is out in the open: an invalid president, and a dangerous psychopath empowered in a lunatic derailment of democratic fundamentals. We don’t have to consider this outcome as in any way binding, and the irony of Trump’s nonsense about voter fraud leaves the opposite suspicion: voter fraud on the right and a clearly rigged behind the scenes manipulation of the vote. The issue of gerrymandering alone should warn us that voter fraud is real indeed.
The issue of climate change alone poses the question of desperation moves to replace the current system of madness rendered worse by the Trump phenomenon.
We can propose a Washington march of our Red Forty-eight Group, albeit a virtual group, but with a realizable core idea: proceed as if the virtual revolution were coming true, bring more and more protests to Washington, continuously, and never acknowledge the legitimacy of the abortion that Trump, and congressional wolves, attempt to bring about.
Our idea is a virtual chaser, and nonetheless a real effect in the initial consideration: as was obvious from the women’s march the result is too timid, constrained by crypto-neoliberal tendencies and designed to stage celebrities and not real leaders on the left.
We shouldn’t kick a gift horse in the mouth and be vigilant in support and critique of this rising tide of ‘marches on DC’…
