This is a semi rational ray of hope for the doomed party but they won’t take it. They have sold themselves to corruption and the criminal disaster of trump. I’m afraid it will take extreme action to salvage anything.
All of the old thinking is bankrupt and irrelevant. In my view large countries have little future. Government will be services coordinating health, education, UBI for the region and will be mostly automated. Democracy will finally arrive but will be limited to publicly owned assets and resources. Life will be centered on virtual communities with competing forms of digital citizenship.
Unfortunately the immediate future will depend on how fast China and the EU evolves. China is the power and wealth until it breaks up. The Eu is the last chance for the old order. This moving so quickly it’s sad watching trumpsters stumbling into economic oblivion and Democrats envisioning a return to the peak of the American Empire. They will die locked in each other’s arms. The world is moving on with growing impatience at the trump insanity. That is the possible source of a coup to clear the danger.
