A last chance? As hard as it might be we can always choose to resist.
The masters of the universe are attempting this takeover vis a vis Trump because they recognize our current economic malaise has no precedent and is out of phase with prior 50 year economic cycles since capitalism took hold 250 years ago. They are running scared.
What comes next? Keynesian policies may no longer work in a system that has exhausted itself. The fifth wave is 16 years overdue. The labor movement has been decimated by technological advances and globalism. Growing out of our current economic malaise may not be a viable option. Is the failure of capitalism inevitable?
I wonder where the Democratic party is right now. Does anyone think they are responding appropriately? The identity politics strategy has proven only to work for the party of white supremacy. This most recent defeat of the Democrats only proves how shallow a basis identity politics has proven itself to be. The Democratic party needs to get back in touch with its roots, but with a view to the future, in order to find a message that appeals across the board and not just to the various minority groups that compose it.
It is up to us to realize that resistance should become more than fighting against this current reality. We should offer a viable alternative. I do not have the answer - I like many others suffer from a crisis of perception - but I do have a sense that we are at the end of a cycle of cycles and we need new ideas and a new vision to come to the fore.
