Good commentary, Soloman.
Lest we forget, this is, after all, America. Any of us who might, even for an instant, have believed that a surging progressive movement would be tolerated by the Big Guns without major blowback have been fooling ourselves.
Simply having legitimate discussions and debates between candidates and their supporters about the nature of a new progressive agenda for the nation, was never really a likely scenario. It was just a question of how and when the battle would be joined.
Biden, it seems, is the Oligarchs’ instrument and it seems we are about to hear the S-word thrown around as much by Dems as by Trump, in the very real effort to DERAIL actual political debate involving The People and Our Future to becoming the usual accusations and slams of vocabulary, sidelining the REAL Issues of our times: healthcare, education, climate, justice, participation, and a sustainable version of New Deal economics.
Biden represents a desperate effort to once again neuter politics and keep any such discussions being run by the corporate media alone.
We can only hope that there is enough energy out there to keep the resistance alive.
