I really follow your posts closely as they are so thoughtful and fundamentally correct.
However, I disagree with one thing that you posit here (that is unprovable either way). My feeling is that the Dems (especially since the Clintons/DLC coup) haven’t slowed the pace of things getting worse, but have actually sped it up. (But my feeling is unprovable also).
But whatever-the-case, it is abundantly clear that things have been getting worse for the vast majority of people in the U.S. and globally – even for the survival of the biosphere itself.
Given that, no matter the risks, in the U.S. – progressives, leftists, liberals, independents, anarchists and honest conservatives – have to break with the Duopoly and use our limited resources (but majority numbers) to organize outside of the Duopoly to build organizations that have the ability to alleviate suffering in the short term and eventually overthrow the oligarchs and corporatists who empty the Duopoly as agents to co-opt us and/or violently keep us in line.
