Until we get a genuine "power shift" we will not get any truly substantive "priorities shift."
Under Trump, the supremacy of the interests of corporations and extremely wealthy people is not challenged. But under the previous five presidents, Reagan Bush Clinton Bush Obama, the supremacy of the interests of corporations and extremely wealthy people was not challenged. Precisely this, is what has brought us to Trump.
We need to literally take power, and wealth, away from corporations and the extremely wealthy. We need to shift power, and wealth, into real democratic control.
Trump's wall? Obama deported more people than any president in US history. Trump's war? Obama presided over the expansion of the drone assassination program by ten times over what Bush did, personally approved a "kill list" every week, destroyed Libya and ventured into Syria, and supported the illegal trillion-dollar "modernization" of the US nuclear arsenal, without getting the US out of Iraq or Afghanistan. Trump's warming? Obama was "all in" on fossil fuels, fracking, coal, and oil wars. Pandering to corporate power while they knowingly unleashed the horror of climate chaos was overseen by every administration in my lifetime. A Clinton presidency would have done NOTHING to address the FUNDAMENTAL sources of the swiftly accelerating ecological and social crises that are dis-integrating the living Earth and human communities.
As long as "progressives" focus primarily on Trump as the personification of horror, instead of zeroing in on the entire class of criminals in suites whose unelected authority and outrageous multi-generationally stolen "wealth" steer the political economy, we do not have a program to avert planetary and civilizational disaster.
Yes, Trump threatens to unleash specific and fascistic horrors that were not on the agenda of the sold-out corporate Democrats, and we rightly resist the naked imposition of genocidal and police-state programs in the "homeland." But the grinding poverty and unraveling ecology that Trump now contributes to, have been a multi-generational bi-partisan project in the interests of the kleptocratic plutocrats who truly rule, and who must truly be dis-empowered if we are to have any chance of steering the political economy away from the onrushing disaster that is unfolding.
Our "progressive" program must encompass ENDING corporate supremacy, and outlawing the forms of "limited-liability, investor-owned" corporations that now dominate the entire global economy. These corporate forms were literally invented to carry out colonization, genocide and enslavement - the British East India Company, the Dutch East India Company, the original corporations were DESIGNED to colonize and steal and usurp and concentrate "wealth" in the hands of a tiny (Euro-centric, male, Christian and white-supremacist) minority. The forms have evolved - and corrupted the political system - to the point where now these invented human constructs claim to "own" the genetic basis of life itself!
The metastasizing mega-crisis that is swiftly swamping all living and social systems, goes far beyond Trump. We need to reach far beyond Trump, if we are to have any real hope to slow the accelerating mass extinction event that is now clearly underway.
