This is the problem of a traditional political party locked into a world that exists only as a facade. They are desperate to play to the American middle, we need to avoid anything extreme, but that doesn’t exist anymore. There is no center. There is only fascism or complete restructuring to a post socialist, post capitalist survival.
We are now at war with fascism politically and our own planet that we have told to kill us. So we are war with ourselves and our failure to understand what we we have created both politically and environmentally.
This is not a time for caution. People who understand what is going on and understand what fascism does want action now. We have had forty years of a disintegrating political system. Only one party is trying to keep the system alive. What was the Republican Party abandoned all pretense almost thirty years ago. They have mental instance ‘useful fool’ in power that has allowed them to load the judiciary with wackos and wingnuts.
What do they want? Chaos. It is an old KGB tactic. Created chaos and rational people become confused. You work rationally in a chaotic situation. The advantage then is to those who care nothing for the future but want only power and everything they can take now.
They foolishly thing that if they get enough money for their owners they will be taken care of when the planet goes to hell. But it doesn’t work that way. That is extinction thinking.
