I know, it is so weird for people to want their political system and political parties to actually implement policies that are net-benefits to them. We have had decades of stagnating wages, massive growth in inequality, crumbling infrastructure, on and on, and it cannot be said that the center and the right has any actual answers. Now, if you can provide me some actual solutions emanating form the likes of those running the DCCC and if you can explain how those solutions are actually going to be implemented when the Democratic Party is still heavily reliant on donors that oppose needed structural changes, please do so. Seems obvious that when this particular globalization was created (which you have defended here numerous times, although never really moved by anything you have said), it was obvious that this is where we would be headed, because this particular globalization was created to explicitly undermine the ability of democracies to control the rich and capital the world over. Those powerful interests created the WTO, and they are the ones with a seat at the table when deals like NAFTA (which you think is okay and no big deal) were created. Well, guess what, that stuff has benefited the groups at that table far more than anyone else. Shocking, right?
So, what solutions do you see Yunzer coming form the non-left? What vision do the Democrats have to really change this context? What sense of urgency do you see from people like Pelosi? And what do you have to say about the fact that the current quasi-fascist entered office with support of only 25% of the voting age population? Who votes far less than the middle class and the upper class? The poor and lower income voters, which the political system has de-politicized and ignores. Who votes far less than white people? People of color, who have been destroyed by both these parties and their policies. Who has voted us into this position? The boomers, and who votes less than the boomers? Young people. God forbid we start to try and appeal to those that don’t vote, and ask ourselves why turnout is so massively low, and why polls show that people are now questioning every major dominant institution in the country now. Surely those that have been running the show got this all figured out. Silly leftists need to go to Yunzer to get a good finger waving. Even though they have had no power what so ever, and have been right about most everything going back decades, they somehow are really the naive children in all of this and are the ones at fault.
Oh, and of course don’t pay any mind that the public actually does agree with the left on almost every major issue, even with the left barely existing politically at the national level until very recently. Surely no problem in a democracy when there is such a huge gap between what people want, and what the state is actually doing. And what it has been doing has been a smashing success.
