What was he thinking? He was thinking about another age when there was still a functioning political system tied to this nation state. As I’ve written about when he got serious about running, Joe Biden is a good sidekick but not a leader. He is also melancholy and confused about the collapse of the nation state system with the US and GB leading that failure.
He was very happy as a Senator acting as the American aristocracy but that entity is a relic of bygone eras. He wants his old boys club back but it is already rancid with decomposition. What is Joe to do? So he laments the past and says he will bring back . . . No matter how badly it stinks.
But let’s be clear that Joe Biden, in his confusion, is still better than the fully criminal party currently in control of the Senate. That is to be ignored and the people who claim to have voted for them and Trump are now irrelevant. We need to quarantine the victims of social psychosis of which the Republican Party became the disease vector decades ago.
