What is Happening in the United States

Far From a Change, RCEP Agreement is More Capitalism as Usual

The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership is being called a new model of trade agreements. Such paeans appear to be premature, and we might better hold off on uncorking the champagne. It is best to remember that so-called “free trade” agreements are products of neoliberal assaults on any a…

On to Normalcy

On Veteran’s Day last my chapter of Veterans for Peace/Major General Smedley Butler Brigade, stood out on one of the nation’s most ancient and venerable platforms of dissent, Boston Common. We are an aging group. Once able to marshal hundreds, only 15 of us carried placards condemning war and sp…

Why COVID-19 Granted the U.S. Most Favored Nation Status

Routinely described by its “leaders” as “the greatest country in the world” (hereafter “GCITW”) and “the richest country in the world” (hereafter “RCITW”), the United States is home to 4.25% of the world’s population but 21% of global COVID-19 cases and 18% of global COVID-19 d…

Trump and a Republic That We Could not Keep

Donald Trump refuses to concede and claims the 2020 election was rift with fraud.  American democracy is in peril. Then the GSA will fund the Biden presidential transition.  His lawsuits are coming to an end.  The electoral college will soon cast its ballots.  And Donald Trump will no longer be…

Lookout for Karl Marx!

Marx wrote all of his analyses and criticisms of capitalism well over one hundred and fifty years ago. Since then the capitalists have been working overtime to discount and demonize his assessments of capitalism as a system that exploits and indeed enslaves workers in order to profit from their labo…

Forward Into the Past

That Barack Obama’s “hopey changey thing,” as Sarah Palin called it, would be a major disappointment — not for Wall Street and others in the rich and heinous class, but for nearly everybody else — became clear when Obama chose Joe Biden for a running mate. It became undeniable, after the O…

Siege the Day: QAnon, Trumpist Blockages, and the Logistics of Spiritual Warfare

While mainstream media and their “information experts” persist with faith-based strategies of ridicule and Big Tech banning, QAnon continues to elude most of its critics by feverishly cultivating its shadowy populism. I consider QAnon to be an internet-enabled and religiously-based trumpist soci…

Dear Orange Man Bad: An Open Letter From the Enemy of Your Enemy

Dear Orange Man Bad, Well, winter is coming with a vengeance and I’m guessing that you’re feeling pretty bummed. I’ve noticed the dayglo orange has drained from your cheeks and your once histrionic tirades have taken on all the petty melodrama of a garden variety adolescent hissy fit. And who…

I Got COVID at Work. I Won’t be the Last One

At first, we had no masks. The plan for social distancing was chaotic at best, nonexistent at worst. Hundreds of angry customers were clamoring to get in. And there I was, working the floor of a big box store during a pandemic. It was all hands on deck as COVID-19 hit the country and my Kansas town…

The Pardon of Corn

The turkey . . . is a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America. – Benjamin Franklin,  Letter to Sarah Bache It was the juxtaposition that instantly drew the observer’s attention- pictures of President-elect Biden in Delaware on November 24, standing with future m…

Where is Authority for Inclusivity?

If the left had identified and dealt with [the dissatisfaction of working people] early on, if they had counteracted the fallacies the Republicans used to explain that dissatisfaction, if they had listened instead of stereotyping blue-collar angst as “Archie Bunkerism”…and maybe offered some g…

Yes, the Left Should Talk to Trump Supporters

Photograph by Nathaniel St. Clair “To win big, we have to follow the methods of spending very little time engaging with people who already agree, and devote most of our time to the harder work of helping people who do not agree come to understand who is really to blame for the pain in their lives…

Can We Build a Progressive Future If We Dismiss a Large Part of the Working Class?
