I agree with everything you say although I have no idea of why the accusation of bias. While you are stating, accurately, general principles I working on maintaining a working audit on the current political pathology. You might look at the most recent article that addresses the irrelevance of the Trump disaster

The point was to encourage objective observation in the short term while remaining focused on the medium and long term paradigmatic changes. That would, hopefully, lesson the confusion and anxiety of being repeatedly sucked down Trump’s rabbit hole of wildly irrational distractions.

There is a pragmatic issue here with how to get from the current disaster to some from of recovery. I don’t think it is possible, for all the reasons you state, but, it needs to be tried. That means going through the ritual of voting for Joe Biden to crack open a door on this train to hell while hoping someone with sense (and there are several on the edge) will jump on board and take control.

If that isn’t a long shot I don’t know what one looks like.
