Immense student loans that haunt 44 million young Americans and mortgages their future, tax breaks in the form of corporate socialism to enrich even more the insanely rich, built-in racial injustices to diminish the hard work of African-Americans and punish them for love of country, all of these are exercises that have gone awfully wrong as American capitalism has morphed into a Frankenstein experiment.
We are no longer the country that protected the middle class prior to President Ronald Reagan. We have become a monstrosity ready to implode.
And implode, we did. Think insurrection of January 6, QAnon, the Oath Keepers, and the Proud Boys. The worse is yet to come if President Biden does not fix our social ills. Not through a 1.9 Trillion band-aid, but by delivering Congress back to the people.
Given his answer in Wisconsin with regard to student debt, Biden does not see or understand the subduction underneath, which is about to seismically change this country forever. He is, unfortunately, too old school and still beholden to how Washington worked the last 40 years.
Unfailingly, he has the right temperament, but his empathy comes short. Way too short.
American capitalism has morphed into a Frankenstein experiment the last 40 years, and President Biden, as empathetic as he is, still believes in that horrible experiment ruling over our nation.
A THIRD POLITICAL PARTY
This is why our country needs a third political party and even a fourth one. Parties that speak to the people, about the people, and for the people. The differences between the two-party system of today, one that only looks for the interests of businesses and the other that cares about the people, once every two years, just to get their votes, is not the solution that would solve the immense challenges facing our great nation.
Most important of all, we need to return Congress to serve the interests of the people. As things stand today, the majority of politicians serve the interests of corporate America at the expense of the people. All you have to do is watch some of the social episodes “60 Minutes’ produces to fully grasp the steep tangent we are sliding on. American capitalism has morphed into a Frankenstein experiment the last 40 years, and President Biden, as empathetic as he is, still believes in that horrible experiment ruling over our nation.
A third-party that has equal access to primaries and debates is long overdue. The problem is that both the Republicans and the Democrats have a choke-hold on all the assets that open up the possibilities for Americans to choose from a variety of candidates representing three or more political parties. Without their cooperation, there is no chance that a third-party can rise to compete.
It’s just another example of how corrupt Washington has become.
If our own Marie-Antoinette, in the form of capitalism gone bad, does not stop proposing the people should eat cake if hungry, using Mitch McConnell as their mouthpiece, then the people will storm whatever symbol of American capitalism to change things.
IF NOT CAPITALISTS AND POLITICIANS THEN IT IS REVOLUTIONARIES
So far, it looks like the corporate world remains oblivious to the inequalities harming our nation, and our politicians refuse to fix our system on their own, which means there is only one way left for the people to take charge. We all remember how Bastilles changed France forever. From a monarchy to a republic with deep socialist inclinations, France today is better off than during the Marie-Antoinette era.
If our own Marie-Antoinette, in the form of capitalism gone bad, does not stop proposing the people should eat cake if hungry, using Mitch McConnell as their mouthpiece, then the people will storm whatever symbol of American capitalism to change things. It happened already on a miniature scale both financially (i.e. occupy Wall Street) and politically (i.e. January 6 insurrection).
Why is Joe Biden still burying his head in the sands when the writing is on the wall across this nation, to include the rise of new class of Progressive Representatives eager to give socialism a chance?
If American capitalism does not let go of Congress to serve the interests of the people, and our politicians do not fix the ills of the Reagan era, our nation will have its own Bastilles day that will change it forever. If you have any doubt, I urge you to speak to French Bastilles scholars. They will certainly sound the alarms as I am doing here.
