The Bankruptcy of the American Left

Chris Hedges
Mr. Fish / Truthdig

"There will be no economic or political justice for the poor, people of color, women or workers within the framework of global, corporate capitalism. Corporate capitalism, which uses identity politics, multiculturalism and racial justice to masquerade as politics, will never halt the rising social inequality, unchecked militarism, evisceration of civil liberties and omnipotence of the organs of security and surveillance. Corporate capitalism cannot be reformed, despite its continually rebranding itself. The longer the self-identified left and liberal class seek to work within a system that the political philosopher Sheldon Wolin calls “inverted totalitarianism,” the more the noose will be tightened around our necks. If we do not rise up to bring government and financial systems under public control—which includes nationalizing banks, the fossil fuel industry and the arms industry—we will continue to be victims."

@husurpada Wusstest du, dass in Deutschland die Holocaustleugnung verständlicherweise nicht gut ankommt? So viel zur Pseudogeschichtsschreibung. Suche dir doch bitte etwas Besseres zu tun.

To be or not to be, that is a question.

What is it that we are supposed to be?
That is another one.

Someone asks again: Are you with us or with the other ones?

This time, the issue seems to be more clear for some: human rights or no human rights.

One question leads to another...

Human lives or property?

Health or economy?

How do we actually guarantee those human rights systematically?

An one-off payment and justice is done?

Who has the answers?

Do you understand how a squid feels?

@husurpada M'hauria agradat saber contextualitzar les afirmacions pseudohistòriques que fas. No sembla que estiguis interessat en el seguiment de les meves públicacions que tracten de la pseudociència.

@husurpada Hola!
