This is yet another illustration of the failure of the neoliberal establishment, represented by Obama and his feeble, corporatist appointees, to protect the public interest. In the face of an incoming administration certain to be openly hostile to public health and environment protection, one would HOPE that the Obama administration would aggressively and swiftly do all that it can to take action against climate change, to protect pollinators and biodiversity and to otherwise protect public health and the environment. But no. He'll rest with a few largely symbolic moves, and nothing that the corporate giants wouldn't want.
I shall never forgive Obama for such failures; he of such natural capacities; .("To whom much is given, much more is expected." ) ;
he of such bold promises ( " Change We Can Believe In" .)
If there is a mass movement to counter Trump and the right wing, it must be consciously focused also on preventing a return to power of the neoliberal establishment that set the stage for such a radical rightward shift.
