and “We do not live in capitalism” by Wolfgang Belitz and Yves Wegelin
There Goes the Rule of Law
by Bill Moyers
Trump weaponized and disfigured the rule of law by making the Dept of Justice go after his political opponents and pardoned white collar criminals to show white collar crime does not exist at all. The constitutional state is being replaced by the security state. The security state is marked by the generalization of fear, the de-politization of citizens, the repetition of the big lie (we are invaded) to repress the small lies and trust in an all-knowing leader.
“We do not live in capitalism”
After the transition to Atlantic turbo-capitalism, little can be recognized from the earlier times of the initiatives of the social market economy. In this situation, the counter-factual and fact-immune creed of all conservatives is enmeshed in a deep unconsciousness about the world in which we live. We live in a plutocracy where the richest 62 persons have as much wealth as the poorer half of the world’s population.
