is progressive america really winning?
the quotation on your comment made me think you deliberately truncated the important part of my comment. with strategizing i 've meant i want to win. i want to put my boot in the faces of the billionaire and rule 'em with fear hahaha…
…but seriously my recommendation for you sir wasn’t meant to be used by „politicians“ in Washington, instead i 've tried to recommend a strategist for progressive america (and you guys here on CD) because to me it seemed progressive america doesn’t think. and with a chief strategist i 've meant somebody like Doug Henwood i.e somebody that can pen over the (third rate) writings of the journos, to open up a perspective… i think a perspective is a luxury most people can’t afford to buy (or create) so it’s up to teachers and educators to create a perspective for everybody, but the progressives have hopelessly failed to create that perspective… progressive america has no solutions, no economics and no inspirations for the little people Bill Mahr doesn’t care about, as he openly admitted… all the progressive journos have to offer for us havenots is elitism, cynicism and the sheeple-isms from journos like Tom Hartman.
however the (climate) solutions of the progressives are dead in the water because they were cornered by the liberal elites from the Silly con valley, i think the nexus around the Silicon valley — with TED and DAVOS as unforgiving war machine — has defeated the (informal) progressive alliance i.e the elites of the capitalist emerged victorious (from a invisible battle Naomi Klein has failed to lead) by using climate change as a means to sell „solutions“ for climate change they won it all — instead of progress people might get business as usual because the businesses create the „solutions“ against climate change i.e the „solution“ to save the environment is well on its way — GMO, electric cars and nuclear energy are the new green but i like to call it the new fordism: everything is green as long it’s not natural hahaha.
wrong or not, fair or not, to me it seemed the progressives are losing on all fronts…
…the new green could also be described as capitalism’s „solution“ for everything but please consider this before you raise the troll flag: whether or not the „solutions“ (from the Silicon valley) are visionary (or environmental friendly) doesn’t matter what matters for the academics is the science, if the new green „project“ works on the papers of James Hansen et al then they might get away with it, but what do the critics from CD say about the „solutions“ from the Silly con valley? e.g did the critics take a liking in electric cars from Elin Musk?
a few days ago on a thread on CD the critics were giving their best to TRASH Elon Musk as hard as possible… however the critics failed to spot the very obvious: Elon-kun is a boy with irrelevant ideas but instead of going for the easy kill the commentators (on CD) started to attack his skin color hahaha… i 'll leave it up to you sir, to decide whether or not CD’s comment section succeed at trashing Elon Musk — i believe they failed horribly but i never understood a progressive — however one thing is sure: Elon Musk is a super star and the Youtuber love him, the internet loves him, Lori Harfenist (from RT) loves him i.e dismissing the obvious popularity of Elon Musk and the popularity of the „solutions“ from the Silly con valley — i.e the nexus that created Elon Musk — is terrible stupid!!! and i 'd dare to claim: some things are how they are and the college kids (that don’t want to grow up) will always love what they love i.e progressive america needs to deal with it (as they say).
the liberal elites from the Silly con valley won it all — not so fast!!! don’t give us bull and self defeating determinisms, my followers might complain if i 'd had any — well they totally won because they already did plz observe what happened recently…
…the british Guardian declared Bill Gates (yes Bill Gates the billionaire) as leader of all the worlds climate activists i.e the things i 've described aren’t a mad joke (or a conjecture) they already happened!!! so the liberal elites (around the Silicon valley and TED) really conquered the leadership of all climate activists and the grand global progressive alliance therefore lost their powerup — i.e climate science was meant to be used as a high octane powerup to fight capitalism and its ills — but the powerup was lost when James Hansen et al changed their priorities as they aligned themselves with the elites of the capitalist to make more global capitalism hahaha — this would explain why so many oldies panic when they encounter a nuclear troll i.e the trolls are the manifestation of a pyrrhic victory that came out of nowhere — another depressing event that already happened.
so do you still think the progressives don’t need a new strategist? or strategy to create a strategy? i think so, but you sir made it abundantly clear that you don’t care about my ideas.
i probably have failed to present my ideas, but it changes nothing for my premise… the progressives need new attitudes, new projects, all new economics and kickass independents, think Abby Martins armed with katana sharp ideas… i want to win but with XR and Chris Hedges on their front i feel like i 've lost already.
